Specialist cabinet manufacturer BA Clic Components has secured £440,000 of funding to support the creation of 40 new jobs at its Rotherham factory.

BA Clic Components, which operates from its newly refurbished 52,000sq ft factory at Barbados Way, Hellaby, received the funds from the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

The company recently finalised the acquisition of the Uniclic for furniture business from Unilin in March this year, which has seen the new start-up pump in over £3m of funding.

BA Clic Components signed a license agreement with UNILIN for the Uniclic® for furniture technology along with the ongoing and future production of all Clic components and ClicBox to the existing Unilin customer base in the UK and Ireland.

David Caulfield, BA Clic's sales & marketing director, said: "We are delighted to continue expansion in the South Yorkshire region where we have already established business with another business within the group, employing over 150 people in Doncaster.

“Our experience of the skill set and work ethic of the people of this region convinced us of the prudence of setting up a further operation here in Rotherham. We are convinced this can create real job opportunity and continued economic growth in and around this area."
