Spalding-based engineering firm Welland Power Limited can set new goals for itself after securing a £25,000 cash windfall from a project promoting business growth.
The firm, which supplies diesel generators from a site in Welland Business Park, Clay Lake, has been awarded a grant from South Holland District Council’s Grants4Growth programme aimed at promoting efficiency and environmental excellence in business.
Grants4Growth is an £11 million project being run across Lincolnshire and eastern England where firms can apply for capital grants to fund new and efficent manufacturing processes, equipment and technology.
Welland Power managing director Charlie Farrow said: “A friend recommended that we look into funding to help make the most of the sections of our warehouse that are too cold and dark to work in which are just wasted space.
“After a little research, we found Grants4Growth and the application process for it was quick and easy, with minimal paperwork.
“Thanks to Grants4Growth’s support, the entire factory is now fit to work in - something that wouldn’t have been possible without this financial support.”
Grants4Growth project manager Antony Gough said: “We pride ourselves on offering a simple and straightforward process for businesses to receive the funding needed to grow, create jobs and develop a more sustainable future.”
