Julie Roberts grew up in North Wales, but moved to Manchester in 2001 where she built a career in the media sales and advertising sector, before changing careers to work for an international firm in the home heating sector.
However, the Daily Post reported that things changed for Ms Roberts when she moved back to her home town of Bangor in 2017 to help look after her dad who was ill. It was at this point that she “fell back in love” with the area and decided she wanted to stay and raise her three children here.
But with few employment opportunities she had to think outside the box. Working in partnership with Manchester businessman Stefan Maciejewski, she has set up Warme Heating.
It’s a company that specialises in providing electric radiators. As a result of her experience and determination to find a way to stay in the region, she is now planning to establish the company’s first base in Anglesey before branching out elsewhere.
She told the newspaper: “I’d worked for a huge international company in the home heating sector, travelling thousands of miles per year, and realised that I could offer a much more personal service in North Wales, with a very strong emphasis on aftercare.”
There is a lot of work currently being done to position North Wales as a business destination, with the Growth Deal for the region expected to generate around £1 billion in investment in the area.
Six local councils in North Wales have been working together to deliver a new Growth Deal that will benefit existing businesses in the area and help new ones to get started.
