Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Business Secretary Vince Cable visited David Brown in Huddersfield, Yorkshire on October 13th , to personally sign a £2million Regional Growth Fund (RGF) grant for a major project in the region.
The RGF, alongside David Brown’s investment of £2.8million, will boost the company’s growth in the renewable energy sector – in the UK and worldwide – and secure and create 80 jobs in the area.
David Brown, a globally operating expert in gear technology products and services, will develop a world-class wind gearbox research and development (R&D) centre as part of a new state-of-the-art facility being planned in Yorkshire. The wind gearbox R&D centre will enable the company to develop and test new gearing technology for the wind industry, utilising its experience and expertise in other high-integrity industries, such as mining, conventional power, oil and gas, rail and defence.
