Abbey Eng LLP has been in operation for over 15 years and is a local leader in Metal Manufacturing & Engineering. Over the last 3 years we have proudly been contracted in the Nuclear Industry producing waste disposal boxes to aid the decommissioning of the UK’s nuclear plants.

As the contracts are due to expire soon, we have diversified our business and are looking to enter the Textile Industry and have an agreed 5-year framework in place with an International Blue Chip brand. This new venture will create a new revenue stream with a minimum of 18 jobs over the next 2 years.



To fulfil our framework agreement there are several capital items we must purchase.

The second stage of the project is installation of 4 x Sewing machines, a Binding Machine, and a Compressor, with the capability to power up to 12 machines.

The sewing machines would require tables to accommodate 2mtr wide material.


Deliverable Timescale

We expect the project to commence no later than April 2023, and to be completed by August 2023.


Indicative Budget –                £65k – £75k
