News Full Image ATD is pleased to announce plans to take on 30 new workers over the next two years after buying premises next to its current base in Coventry.  The expansion has been made possible after being awarded a grant from the Regional Growth Fund which was approved by the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

Brett Townsend, Managing Director of ATD said 'The RGF grant will make a massive difference to ATD.  We are in the process of buying 33,000 sq ft of premises which should be completed by the end of this year.  In the next three months, we will be creating jobs in seat assembly, component manufacture and sewing as we expand to meet the demand from the train and automotive industries.'

Councillor Kevin Maton, Coventry City Council cabinet member for business, enterprise and employment and CWLEP board member, said 'There is a great deal of experience at the company and a great deal of expertise in their staff.'
