Specialist engineering firm to create new jobs following investment Grimsby-based specialist engineering company Fowler & Holden Ltd (F&H) has secured a major £250,000 investment from NPIF — FW Capital Debt Finance, part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund and managed by FW Capital.

Established over a century ago in 1919, F&H operates a foundry, machine shops and a fabrication facility at its 20,000ft2 site, turning over £3 million annually. Thanks to the investment, the business has been able to secure 25 jobs and plans to create a further 12 positions during the next two years.

With its core business being manufacturing and machine castings for large national civil engineering customers, the company has a local and specialist client-base. F&H also undertakes machining and fabrication, with a focus on large and heavy gauge machining and fabrication.

The deal was facilitated by FW Capital Investment executive Andy Castle, following an introduction by Mike Asquith, of Trusted Business Partner Ltd, advisor to F&H.

Mr Castle, FW Capital investment executive, said: “F&H is a well-established business in the manufacturing sector that is successfully expanding and creating new employment opportunities. We are pleased to have been able to provide this funding to safeguard and create jobs for the local economy and to allow the business to continue with its ambitious growth plans.”

Tim Brooksbank, F&H director, said: “This investment has helped us to safeguard the jobs of 25 people and create 12 new roles in the manufacturing industry. FW Capital was very helpful and we greatly appreciate its support.”

Mr Asquith concluded: “F&H is a long-established and well-respected company and I am delighted they have been able to secure the funding needed to expand and create new jobs. I am always confident in recommending the services of FW Capital to my clients. As a funding partner, FW Capital is consistently willing to go the extra mile to support the businesses it works with.”
