Dr Vince Cable Visits Redpack
Dr Vince Cable Secretary of State chose Redpack Packaging Machinery as the venue for the launch of the “Growing Business Fund”, a £3m scheme designed to kick start growth.
Dr Cable said: “Redpack clearly is a superb local company. They have got more than 40 local employees here. They are a successful manufacturer, exporting all over the world [for example] in Brazil, Mexico and Malaysia. They have got a full order book and they have got through the recession. The problem they do have is that they want skilled people, which is why we have to invest more in apprenticeships, and if they are really going to expand they are going to need more funding support, so this is why funds like the Growing Business Fund, will be useful.”
