About Coast Spas
Coast Spas, based in Langley, BC, Canada, is a renowned manufacturer of high-quality hot tubs and swim spas. With nearly 30 years of experience, they have established themselves as a leading global manufacturer, exporting to over 50 countries. Their products are designed to cater to a variety of needs, from relaxation and stress relief to therapy and rehabilitation, and are known for their energy efficiency and sustainable manufacturing processes.
Coast Spas needed to hire 100 employees for their manufacturing shop floor, fill three key management positions and recruit an IT Manager. They also required training in supply chain management, 6-sigma courses, and software training for new Syspro software. Additionally, they planned to expand into Europe, conduct R&D for designing new components, automate the manufacturing floor, and implement CRM and ERP systems. However, they had never applied for grants before and needed to outsource the entire grant-finding process due to their rapid growth and multiple ongoing projects.
