Shiny Embroidery wins $0.25m LIFT grant
Shiny Embroidery, a Roaring Success customer, has won $0.25m in LIFT grant support from the Victorian Government.
The Local Industry Fund for Transition (LIFT) is an initiative of the Victorian Government, which is aimed at creating sustainable jobs and contributing to the economic development of the local areas most affected by the closure of the major car manufacturers.
Shiny wanted to take advantage of the program, to establish a $1m project aimed at increasing output capacity.
The company is a leader in the Australian market for full service, high volume embroidery of work and leisure garments under the Winning Spirit brand.
The company planned to use the money to purchase embroidery equipment and screen printing machinery, as well as hire displaced automotive workers formerly from Ford Motor company.
With the help of Roaring Success, the company wrote a business case, and submitted a grant application which was approved late in 2016.
We are very proud and pleased to say that the company is now actively benefiting from the LIFT grant.
