Business Growth Grant helps boost growth

22 Mar 2021


St Helens Chambers Business Growth Grant has helped a Haydock manufacturing company to build on its already impressive growth, by part funding its brand new, attention grabbing website.

The Filter Design Company Ltd has been trading for just over 15 years. Founded by current Directors Phil and June Scott, the company’s core mission remains the same today, as it was on its first day of trading. To provide everyone with clean air.

It’s a mission that has served the company well, and its rise from humble beginnings to market leader, with global recognition, has been spectacular.

The company’s high quality products and services have led to ever increasing enquiries from across the world. This led to a management re-think about the old company website.

Company Marketing Executive Hannah Scott explains,” We felt that our old website wasn’t effectively showing off our capabilities to our potential customers, and therefore we may have been missing opportunities. We wanted to update our image and messaging via our website to project to potential clients across the globe that we are an established, specialist company with a lot to give.”

The new Filter Design Company website is now live,, and visitors can’t fail to be impressed with the spectacular opening page, and the slick presentation of information.

“Everyone within the business loves the website” enthused Hannah, “They think it’s really fresh and functional. We’ve had great feedback from outside the business as well, and new leads are starting to come through already, as a result of it.”

The Business Growth Grant is available to St Helens businesses with plans to grow. It can provide up to 35% funding towards the cost of qualifying projects. The application process is quick and straightforward, making it easy for businesses to apply.

Hannah says, “The process was incredibly easy. All it took was one conversation and filling in a couple of forms, and everything was sorted! Funds always arrived promptly and someone was always at the other end of the phone to provide advice if needed.”

The Filter Design Company is striving to build on its growing worldwide reputation, with new and innovative products and services. All the time of course, remaining true to its mission. To provide everyone with clean air.

The final words from Hannah, “The future for The Filter Design Company is very exciting. Our filtration and respiratory protection products have been in-demand during the continuing pandemic and we have many new and innovative products on the horizon as a result. Watch this space!”

The Business Growth Grant is available to St Helens based businesses which are looking to grow. For more information contact Business Support on 01744 742058 or email
