Operating from a newly refurbished 52,000 sq ft factory at Barbados Way, Hellaby in Rotherham, from a total start up funding of over £3m, new company BA Clic Components have just secured £440,000 of funding from the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). The LEP funding is designed to enable BA Clic Components to bring 40 new jobs to the local area and keep this innovative production process in UK and more specifically Rotherham.
The BA Clic Components factory will be manufacturing ClicBox, which is a revolutionary product that makes cabinet assembly easier than ever before. It doesn’t require any tools, fittings or glue; you literally just click the different components together to make an even stronger than traditional carcass in seconds.
This is great news for the local economy as the new Northern Powerhouse minister, Andrew Percy, who recently visited the BA Clic factory says: “This government remains committed to rebalancing the economy through creating a Northern Powerhouse, by devolving power to those on the ground and giving them the tools to get on with the job."
David Caulfield BA Clic's sales and marketing director adds: "We are delighted to continue expansion in the South Yorkshire region where we have already established business with another business within the group, employing over 150 people in Doncaster. Our experience of the skill set and work ethic of the people of this region convinced us of the prudence of setting up a further operation here in Rotherham. We are convinced this can create real job opportunity and continued economic growth in and around this area."
