Rosebud backs plant maintenance firm

Nelson-based Churchill Plant Engineers has recruited two new employees and will purchase additional machinery after receiving a £40,000 loan from Rosebud.

Churchill Plant Engineers offers a comprehensive parts and repair service for the construction industry across the UK.

The new recruits have brought the team up to five engineers as the business aims to set up eight depots in the UK by 2028.

The finance has been provided by Rosebud, an £11.25m fund intended to create in excess of 100 jobs per year by providing business finance to growing businesses in Lancashire County Council’s administration area, backed by Lancashire County Developments Limited. It provides loans of £10,000 to £300,000 to businesses in a number of high-growth sectors.

Steve Cooke, director at Churchill Plant Engineers, said: "The support from Rosebud was invaluable in allowing us to recruit two new engineers onto our team, as well as enabling us to remain open and continue to support our utility customers, who are vital to keeping the country running through this difficult time."
