Ex­pan­sion is thanks to £200k loan

Rossendale Free Press - - What’s On -

A VAL­LEY man­u­fac­tur­ing busi­ness has re­ceived a £200,000 cash boost thanks to a loan from a busi­ness in­vest­ment fund.

RCS Doors, based on Bury Road in Rawten­stall, can now double their fac­tory space, cre­at­ing four new jobs in the process thanks to the loan from Lan­cashire En­ter­prise Part­ner­ship’s Rose­bud Fi­nance.

The com­pany, which now em­ploys more than 30 peo­ple, was estab­lished in 1999 by cur­rent man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Steven Kenny and spe­cialises in the de­sign and man­u­fac­ture of roller shut­ters for in­dus­trial, com­mer­cial and do­mes­tic use.

The fund­ing will al­low RCS to ex­pand its op­er­a­tions within its ex­ist­ing premises by in­stalling a mez­za­nine floor, and to em­ploy two sales staff and two ap­pren­tices.

County coun Michael Green, cab­i­net mem­ber for eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, said he was ‘pleased’ that RCS were able to se­cure the fund­ing, adding: “Rose­bud sup­ports busi­nesses by pro­vid­ing them with the sup­port and re­sources to help them grow. And thanks to our in­volve­ment with Boost Busi­ness Lan­cashire, we’re able to ●● County Coun­cil­lor Michael Green, RCS man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Steven Kenny and Peter Rooney – in­vest­ment man­ager for Mer­cia Fund Man­agers – at RCS Doors help busi­nesses to find the tai­lored sup­port that they need.”
