Mako Precision Engineering- a Bilston company is the 100th business to benefit from City of Wolverhampton Council’s delivery of the EU-backed Black Country AIM (Black Country Advice Investment and Markets) programme.
The council provides business support through ERDF-funded programme AIM, helping with growth, investment, market development, and job creation.
AIM pools the resources of the four Black Country local authorities, University of Wolverhampton, and Black Country Chamber of Commerce, to provide specialist consultancy to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) via the Black Country Growth Hub.
Mako Precision Engineering Director, Steve Drinkwater, said: “In the few months we have been working with the city council business growth team we have accessed a wide range of information and support -; much of which we were previously unaware of."
“We have welcomed the grant support to help us invest in a new milling machine, which alongside further training for our already skilled staff, will ensure our position in a competitive market."
Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: “Mako Precision Engineering are a perfect example of the innovative businesses we have here in Wolverhampton.
“The directors have a great drive and determination to succeed and the support from the Black Country Growth Hub is helping them channel that with great results."
