Local Manufacturer set to receive £600 grant for training and development

Allett Mowers, a long established brand and now the UK’s largest manufacturer of petrol-engined cylinder mowers, is taking advantage of grant funding offered by the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire Skills Hub. Based in Hixon, Stafford, the organisation is eligible to tap into the Training Grant Offer provided by the Skills Hub, helping to boost business growth in the local area.

The company has also actively engaged with other funding programmes such as those signposted to by the local Growth Hub.

Initially contacted by the Skills Hub to discuss grant eligibility, the business is now on course to receive a £600 contribution towards training in the carriage of lithium batteries. After meeting with one of the dedicated Skills Advisors, the Director of the longstanding mowers company, James Till, said that “The whole process has been a positive experience and has opened up new opportunities for my staff”.

The Skills Hub is continuing to seek out Staffordshire SMEs in need of skills and training support with the aim of providing grant support and skills advice on a local level.
