The latest grant from the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership’s Regional Growth Fund (RGF) has been awarded to a new Grimsby company specialising in bespoke joinery production and installation, Stonelea Interiors Ltd.
The company has identified a growing market in North East Lincolnshire – as business confidence is growing, so is the requirement for fitting out of new or refurbished premises.
Stonelea Interiors plan to invest nearly £80,000 in a new computer controlled CNC machine in order to accelerate the manufacture of components in house rather than importing products from abroad. The purchase of the machine will also lead to an additional job at the company.
This investment is supported by the machinery purchase grant, part of the Growing the Humber RGF programme.
Kate Bennett, Director of Stonelea Interiors Ltd, said, “For any new company, securing work is crucial to establishing the business. We’ve recently secured a major contract to supply high end commercial kitchens across the UK. The purchase of the machine will help us to deliver this.”
Councillor Ray Oxby, portfolio holder for regeneration, said, “Helping new companies is part of the mix of supporting business in North East Lincolnshire. Accessing business support programmes is sometimes crucial to small business survival, and that’s where we can help intervene. I look forward to following this company’s future.”
