A Black Country manufacturing group is planning to create almost 30 jobs and launch into new sectors after securing a £2.5 million finance deal.
Dudley-based A&T Enclosures makes items such as consoles, cubicles and desks for customers in the rail, water and utility sectors.
It was founded in 1992 and currently has more than 50 staff but is planning to use the new capital to recruit a further 29 employees, drive expansion into new sectors, fund R&D into new products and purchase equipment.
The funding package included a £1.3 million commercial mortgage from Lloyds Bank and a grant from the Regional Growth Fund worth £577,000 via Sandwell Council.
Tim King, managing director of A&T Enclosures, said: "This expansion will enable us to develop and diversify our products and secure the future of our business.
"To provide new and existing customers with a quality and ever-developing product, it was clear we needed to invest in our machinery, our workforce, our research and development and ultimately our premises."
Central Finance, the business advisory firm based in Birmingham, Oldbury and Worcester, worked the company to secure the funding deal.
Managing director Alison Bradley added: "Achieving this funding package is a significant win for A&T Enclosures, Central Finance and the Midlands in general, providing the region with additional employment opportunities, a stronger economic output and confirming that the West Midlands is a thriving, progressive area to live and work. I am proud that I have been able to assist Tim to achieve his expansion plan."
Mark Harris, business development director at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: "Manufacturers are the driving force of economic growth in the Midlands. We are committed to supporting ambitious businesses like A&T Enclosures as they actively secure new growth opportunities."
