Foreglen based manufacturers obtain Rural Development Funding
Foreglen-based joinery manufacturer, JB Interiors LTD, is the latest business to successfully avail of Funding for a business growth project under the NI Rural Development Programme 2014-2020. The programme is managed by Causeway Coast and Glens Local Action Group and JB Interiors Ltd applied to the programme’s Rural Business Investment Scheme which allows new and existing businesses to apply for grant assistance on projects that can deliver growth and create jobs.
JB Interiors LTD was awarded £29,950 to fund a project that will enhance their manufacturing capability for commercial projects. The funding has assisted with the purchase of a CNC Router, Compressor and Dust Extractor which are all now operational at their manufacturing facility.
Director James Brolly set up JB Interiors LTD in 2015 and has since gone from strength to strength delivering on a range of projects throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland including hotels, apartment complexes and shopping Centres. Commenting on the funding Mr Brolly said “I am extremely pleased that I contacted the LAG and proceeded with an application for assistance on this project. We were previously in a position where we were turning away orders but the funding has helped us to purchase equipment that allows us to not only meet demand but also improve the quality and variety of our products. I’d like to thank the LAG for approving the application and for their assistance throughout the process.”
Commenting on the completion of the project, Causeway Coast and Glens LAG Board Member Cllr Brenda Chivers said “I congratulate James in his successful application for funding support to the LAG. He is a great example of the entrepreneurial talent that exists in this Borough and I would encourage others who are looking for support to set up a new venture or expand their existing business to contact the LAG and find out more about the programme.”
Funding Workshops are taking place in June 2018 in advance of Call 6 for the Rural Business Investment Scheme opening in July 2018. For more details contact 028 7034 7016.
