A PACKAGING company in Shipley has invested in new machinery and created three new jobs, following capital funding from the Shipley Towns Fund.

ASC Cartons Limited, based on Leeds Road, is a supplier of premium corrugated packaging across various industries.

The £25,300 grant from the Government-funded Shipley Towns Fund has enabled the firm to invest in three new pieces of machinery.

The funding has also enabled the business to add three new employees, including one apprenticeship, to its 49-strong team.

ASC Commercial Sales Manager James Palfrey-Smith said: “Bradford Council’s Invest in Bradford team has provided business development support to help us realise our ambitions for future growth.

"This latest capital investment through the Shipley Towns Fund has enabled us to produce a greater diversity of products with increased efficiency, for the local community and far beyond.”
