Brosterfield Engineering Services Ltd / Peak Tractors Ltd

Brosterfield Engineering Services/Peak Tractors is a small family business which provides services in the agricultural machinery maintenance, quarry equipment, drilling and utilities industries. The company specialises in hydraulic hose and equipment repairs - offering onsite repairs for breakdowns, welding and general engineering .

The £14,252 Business Development Grant has enabled the company to purchase a new CNC Plasma Cutter to provide customers with a fast local service for producing one off special parts. This latest technology has also allowed them to quote for work at a more competitive price and they have consequently recently won a large contact to make special drill rod baskets for one of the UK largest drilling companies.

Jim Styles (Managing Director) says:

With the help of this Business Development Grant its has allowed a small local family business to obtain the latest technology to move our business forward into markets we could have only dreamed of.

This grant scheme is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF)
