News: £3m investment at Rotherham BA Clic factory

By

Everything has clicked into place to enable 40 jobs to be created at a new kitchen components factory in Rotherham.

Rothbiz reported in April that BA Components, a market leading manufacturer of kitchen and bedroom doors and accessories in the UK and Irish furniture components industry, had bought the rights to Unilin uniclic for furniture activities.

Since taking over Unilin uniclic, a new company has been launched; BA Clic Components. This new company will be operating from a 52,000 sq ft of factory space at Barbados Way at Hellaby.

£440,000 of funding from the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has been secured as part of a total overall investment of more than £3m that will see BA Clic Components take on production of BA ClicBox, a commercial range of components with unique technology mainly used in kitchens that simply clicks together without the use of tools, glues or screws.

Recently installed Northern Powerhouse Minister, Andrew Percy, was in the borough to announce the funding. He said: "The investment is great news on Yorkshire Day and vital to help companies such as BA Clic Components get new factories and businesses up and running – driving growth and creating jobs.

"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."

The funding is from the Unlocking Business Investment programme, run by the LEP, which has already succeeded in generating £200m of direct investment, resulting in nearly 2,500 jobs.
