Four of the latest Welsh Assembly Investment Grants will help some 30 new manufacturing and sales jobs by assisting the launch or expansion of businesses in South East Wales.

The grants, delivered under a fast-track scheme to aid the growth of smaller businesses across Wales, are worth some £170,000 and will support investment of nearly £1 million by the companies concerned.

They include a new venture to produce electric powered vehicles aimed at buyers in urban areas where car parking fees are waived for zero emission vehicles or where free re-charging is provided to electric vehicles.


There are about 30 members in the Florida chapter, and many own several of the vehicles.
