Tyseley-based plastic specialists Andel Plastics Ltd have received a grant through Birmingham City Council which is said to improve sales over the next 12 months and beyond.
Director Helen Pitt says: “The grant is a substantial part of our business plans and without it, we wouldn’t have been able to pursue our current marketing activities. It has already proven to be a success for us as we have gained new orders almost immediately as a result of attending a prestigious trade show. Above that, it has really given us a financial boost and we will now be able to take on new machine operators and an apprentice.”
The grant was made possible after Helen Pitt and Co-Director Graham Robinson contacted the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce who assisted them to make the application for funding.
The Business Development Programme, administered by Birmingham City Council provides tangible support for businesses wanting to expand. One such example is Andel Plastics who are manufacturing, developing their brand and most importantly attempting to create jobs and prosperity for the area.
Established in 1975, Andel Plastics Ltd are involved in plastic injection moulding, working within sectors including automotive.
