A specialist Telford manufacturing company has expanded and created six new jobs after receiving nearly £100,000 from a grant programme supported by the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
Midland Alloy has taken on new staff and built a warehouse extension at its Stafford Park base after receiving £97,285 from the Marches Building Investment Grant (MBIG). The company, which specialises in the manufacture of complex curved metal products and components, says the expansion is part of a £500,000 investment in its future.
According to director Paul Beirne, the new 4000 sq ft extension had created a 6 m high, dedicated pallet racking storage facility for long lengths of aluminium, other materials and tools, and extra space for manufacturing. “This investment will also increase manufacturing space within the existing main factory, with the potential to reduce operating costs and increase the capacity for sales growth and more jobs,” he states.
