Three businesses in the Caerphilly County Borough have been given a cash boost thanks to a new grant scheme.
Fabcraft Ltd in Llanbradach and Caerphilly based firms Hobbs Valve Ltd and Caer Health Services have all benefited from The Local Investment Fund (LIF).
The LIF has been made available through 15 local authorities in Wales and is funded by European Union Money.
Fabcraft Ltd is a fabrication and engineering business operating on Graddfa Industrial Estate in Lanbradach.
Established in 1973, the firm currently employs 20 people and was awarded the grant to purchase a special tube bending machine which greatly improves the efficiency and accuracy of the process.
Hobbs Valve Limited is based in a unit on Trecenydd Business Park in Caerphilly. The company, which manufactures specialist valves, was established in 2005 and now employs 21 people.
The grant helped purchase an exhibition stand and marketing materials to help raise the profile of the business.
