MORE jobs could be on the way for two Huddersfield engineering firms.
They are among businesses across the country to be handed millions to help create new jobs.
Turbochargers manufacturer Cummins Turbo Technologies and valve maker Severn Unival are among 119 successful bidders in the second round of the Government’s £1.4bn regional growth fund.
Both are expected to create new jobs.
It follows the success of David Brown Gear Systems in the first round of bids when the company landed a £2m grant to add to its own £2.8m investment in a project set to create 80 jobs by developing gearboxes for use in wind turbines.
Details of the projects backed in round two of the regional growth fund have yet to be announced but more than £950m has been earmarked for the firms.
However, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills said the projects would directly create about 37,000 jobs with a further 164,000 jobs created or protected.
The Government investment is expected to support almost £6bn of private investment in the successful projects, said Deputy Prime Nick Clegg.
He said: “I am delighted to be able to announce this boost to business, which will jump-start growth and create jobs that last in the places that really need it.
