The company is based at Mansfield’s Hermitage Lane Industrial Estate and has secured investment of over £250,000 for machinery, IT systems and the creation of skilled local jobs.

T4 Design has bought another three Intermac 23 PC controlled cutting machines which cut and shape glass.

Mr Gibson said the company was in a quick turn around industry providing toughened glass for the shop fitting industry.

He added: “We do most of the cosmetics counters for airports and manufacture for the shop fitters.

“The new machines will enable us to offer a quicker service and have increased our running machines to seven.”

The director said the company had recently taken on 10 extra staff and the new equipment would allow staff to meet new demand from shop-fitting and glass panelling.

Said Mr Gibson: “We hope to maintain steady growth, keep people in long-term employment and contribute to the local economy.”

Kenny Oldham, managing director at T4 Design, said: “The investment comes out of a continuing drive to stay ahead in the specialist glass market.”
