Darlington design agency Chetaru did such a great job for a German client, they have supported them launching in their native country despite the uncertainties about Brexit.
Dr Herbert Broens, who runs his own German business König GmbH, was so impressed with the low cost and speed of delivery of his own website and mobile optimisation he knew Chetaru’s business service would do well in his country. He realised the huge potential for them in the German web design and digital industry, which was worth €99 billion in 2016.
Oliver Randall, Chetaru director said: “Launching into the German market is very exciting for us as it has been a leading force within the European economy for as long as I can remember. As a company, we have developed models to make it easy to expand into other countries around the world and develop teams to deliver design and web solutions.
Dr Broens, who has extensive financial experience within the pharmaceutical sector, said: “I started as a client of Chetaru and was really impressed with its potential after seeing how efficient the service was in terms of time, money and quality. The model for Chetaru with a production team in India, bringing high quality I.T. as well as lower costs, coupled with project management from the UK and content teams based in the local market is very exciting, particularly in Germany where I was only able to find one company doing something similar. Needless to say, I recognised the potential very quickly.”
Chetaru was established a year ago as the UK office for a well-established Indian IT and web business and has been based in Darlington’s Business Central for a year. He has clients around the UK, and his North East clients to date include 123 Teachers, Prime Aspect Windows and Emma Rifles.
