 Low Carbon Growth Support Project - Supporting SMEs across the West Midlands 

The Low Carbon Growth Support Project used funding from European Regional Development Fund to provide grant funding and support to Small to Medium Size Enterprises in The Black Country and Greater Birmingham and Solihull areas.

Avanti Fitted Kitchens are just one of 28 SMEs across the West Midlands who have taken advantage of this funding. Their grant enabled them to install new LED lighting in order to reduce their carbon emissions and reduce their energy costs.

"Please pass on my thanks to the team there for all their help and support during this project.  I have been re-inspired to make more savings and improvements within the business"

Systems Director, Avanti Fitted Kitchens
