TimberTight, a Cleckheaton-based construction company, has secured £22,247 from AD:VENTURE, the ERDF funded programme supporting start-ups throughout the Leeds City Region.
Gordon Lorimer from TimberTight comments: “Working with the processes, plans and advice that was given we were able to secure more than £22,000 in match-funded grant which allowed us to invest in the machinery that we needed to give us a competitive advantage.
“We also employed a further seven employees to run the equipment, expanding the business and giving local people the opportunity to work and to learn new skills.”
Paul Williamson from TimberTight adds: “We are an even stronger business than before thanks to the help we have accessed from AD:VENTURE. The new contracts that we have won through our enhanced competitiveness is proof of that.”
“Thanks to the associations and partnerships between business service providers, TimberTight has also accessed support from Kirklees Council and Works Better, an employment support programme that is part-funded by the European Social Fund.”
