Doqaru Limited, a recent merger by Aberdeen businesswomen Sarah Downs and Yekemi Otaru is growing at an astounding rate. The company has achieved a six-figure revenue in its first six months of trading. In response to recent growth, the company have plans to expand further this year.
Doqaru are Business Growth Specialists in the Energy sectors and achieve results for their clients by aligning Strategic Marketing and Business Development, with a technical focus.
The last three months have seen the team grow to five staff and a move to new office premises at BalmoralHub, Balmoral Business Park, Altens.
Yekemi Otaru said, “Our continued growth testifies to the gap that we plug in our target sectors. By aligning strategic marketing and business development efforts, we quickly add value to our clients. We have had such great support from our ever-growing network. The months ahead is likely to bring exciting new collaborations with some of them.”
With a dozen clients retained this year so far, and a number of projects, Doqaru has worked to increase capacity and develop its service lines to meet the market demands. The company’s client base is both UK-wide and international, working within the Oil & Gas and Offshore Renewable sectors. More international opportunities await Doqaru. This has led to the company working with Business Gateway and SDI (Scottish Development International) on a growth strategy, including the launch of a London office, a US presence and some key partnerships.
This month also marks Doqaru’s ISO 9001:2015 accreditation. Sarah Downs notes, “This accreditation strengthens our business management system. We wanted something that would help us create a strong foundation to expand upon over the coming years. Yekemi and I are very proud of all the hard work the team has put in and see it as a positive milestone for the company”.
