Award of £50k grant to Company 52 subject to the conditions set out in the Appraisal Panel Summary Table


A report was received to enable the Board to take a decision whether to support the proposal of a Business Investment Fund (BIF) Made Smarter grant of £50,000 to a company that manufactures high end windows and doors, selling primarily to other window fabricators, installers and trade customers on a supply only basis.


The grant would allow the company to automate elements of production and introduce new digital to improve interaction with customers. 


The project is estimated to create 5 FTE’s by 2021.  This represents a gross cost per job of £6,000, considered acceptable value for money for the BIF Made Smarter investment.
