An engineering support services company based in Cheshire says it has plans to expand after receiving a £250,000 loan from The North West Fund for Loans Plus.

Bowdon Group, which provides end-to-end support services to the engineering sector says it will use the loan to underpin further expansion and boost staff numbers.

Chief executive Brian Benson says: “The loan has provided us with the capital to take advantage of the growth in the UK construction industry”.

Bowden is the parent company of a number of businesses in the engineering support sector, including Skelair International, Sema Services and Ford Mainwaring. Its clients include public sector organisations, leading contractors and major private companies.
