BIF Approvals - Company 08

Meeting: 23/10/2019 - SCR - Business Growth Board (Item 8)

8 BIF Approvals - Company 08


A report was received to enable the Board to take a decision whether to support the proposal of a Business Investment Fund (BIF) Productivity Challenge grant of £29,136 to a technical distribution company for a wide range of sensors and instrumentation.


The grant would allow the company to create a vibration test facility for the calibration of accelerometers and transducers, providing the ability to test and calibrate sensors directly in the UK in-house.


The project is estimated to result in a 42% increase in productivity, with GVA per worker forecast to increase from £50,335 to £71,429, and creation of 1 FTE by 2020, considered acceptable value for money for the BIF Productivity Challenge investment.
