The aim of the project was to enable the existing business to expand and recruit further employees.
Improvements were made to the building to extend the existing mezzanine floor creating a showroom, reception area and an office. The additional space has enabled John to expand the training places that are offered and he now offers a rolling programme of courses throughout the year.
The grant was also used to purchase additional machinery required for both bespoke production and training purposes.
The quality hand crafted guitars are recognised worldwide and are played by a number of musicians including:
- Kaiser Chiefs
- Dan Veall
- Dave Shield
- The Stranglers
- JJ Burnell
- Roger Inniss
Increased trainees from all over the world are increasing tourists to the area with recommendations to local accommodation provider, restaurants, local attractions provided as part of the information supplied to the trainees.
