Installation of 3 phase electricity and purchase of equipment for manufacturing business.


Mr Stewart is a welder based on his family farm manufacturing agricultural sheds and feeding equipment for the local farming community and he wanted to improve the H&S of his business through the introduction of 3 phase electricity and the purchase of new pieces of equipment.  Before his grant assistance, David had to power a generator from a tractor causing noise and pollution. 


Funded under Axis 3, through North East Region, David installed 3 phase power to operate his machines and develop the business.  He also purchased a 3 phase welder, bandsaw, and belt sander.  These shall allow him to increase his employment and take on more work and larger jobs.  The applicant also intends to construct a purpose built workshop in two years, but needs the equipment as a priority.
Items funded:

  • 3 phase electricity installation,
  • 6” belt sander,
  • 3 phase welder,
  • automatic bank saw,
