Nia Griffith MP has welcomed help from the Welsh Government to enable EBS Automation to expand. The Dafen company, that designs, manufactures and installs highly sophisticated bespoke automation and robotic systems for a range of industry sectors is trebling the size of its workforce in a major expansion project. The investment, which will see the workforce increase from 16 to 50 over the next five years, is being supported by £113,000 from the Welsh Government’s Economic Growth Fund. It is investing £250,000 in its facilities in Parc Dafen to increase capacity to meet rapidly expanding order books containing projects worth around £3million.
Nia recently accompanied Business Minister Edwina Hart and Keith Davies AM on a visit to the firm. During the visit the Minister said: “It’s excellent news to hear of Welsh companies expanding, investing and creating jobs under challenging trading conditions, and I am pleased the Welsh Government is able to support these businesses realise their expansion plans.”
Nia Griffith MP added, “I would like to congratulate Managing Director Mike Evans and his workforce for the amazing innovative work that they are doing in designing and creating machines to do exactly what their clients require. They really are at the cutting edge of technology. I am delighted that the Welsh Government is able to help them expand, and create more high quality jobs in the area. It is a credit to the quality of their work that their expertise is in such demand.”
