Hailsham-based SPR Coachworks has expanded and taken on two extra staff thanks to help from Locate East Sussex.

The business support service assisted Directors Darren Garner and James Salmon with securing a loan for their specialist vehicle body repair and paintworks firm through the government’s Regional Growth Fund.

The grant is allowing them to buy new equipment for the workshop, update the computer system and drive ahead with marketing plans for the company based in Diplocks Way Industrial Estate.

Two new jobs have also been created as a result.

Darren said: “The Locate East Sussex team were really helpful and explained to us about the process. This money is crucial in enabling us to grow as a business. We are now able to push ahead with marketing the company and taking our plans forward.”
