Colourchange UPVC, which is based at Rendlesham, near Woodbridge, works with double glazing businesses, architects and property development companies, and last year saw demand grow by nearly 50%.

The grant, under the LEP’s Small Grant Scheme, which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, has now enabled it to install a new colouring facility to support future growth.

Owner Daryl Collins said: “We worked closely with the New Anglia Growth Hub who helped us with the grant process. There is no doubt that we have seen a substantial increase for our colouring services and the new spray booth gives us the capability to increase productivity quite substantially.”

He added: “We don’t just spray the UPVC; that would just flake off. We use the latest technology that creates an integration of the colour pigments on the surface forming a bond that does not fade, flake or blister.”

Samantha Jones, a business growth adviser at the New Anglia Growth Hub, said: “It’s thrilling to see the results of the Small Grant Scheme in action. By boosting the client investment with the grant, Colourchange UPVC have been able to install a facility in the business that will lead directly to augmented growth.”
