TBA Textiles to invest in Rochdale plant
A leading UK yarn manufacturer, TBA Textiles is planning to invest £700,000 in new technology and equipment with the support of a £150,000 grant from the N Brown Textiles Growth Programme. This follows a previous investment earlier this year of more than £110,000.
The investment marks a return to British roots for the business, which in recent years outsourced part of its production to the Netherlands. TBA Textiles has reaffirmed its commitment to the future of manufacturing in the UK with an investment that sees 16 new jobs and two new apprenticeships created in Greater Manchester, in addition to the 18 jobs associated with an earlier investment this year.
The help and support offered by the N Brown Textiles Growth Programme in the form of a second grant of £150,000 is greatly appreciated, and goes a long way to assist in their plans to invest around £700,000 into their own manufacturing plant in Rochdale over the next two years.
