Local company ERIKS have significantly invested in new equipment to create more jobs for local people and meet increased demand due to their success.
ERIKS are a specialised industrial service provider that offers a wide range of engineering components, technical services and customisation solutions to all areas of industry.
The company has seen significant growth over the previous five years, including through the pandemic, which has led to the need for investment in new equipment to support ever-increasing customer demands.
Three new production machines were purchased for their base in Oakwell at the cost of £422,000 to improve capacity and create five new jobs.
Councillor Robert Frost, Cabinet spokesperson for Regeneration and Culture, said: "It's fantastic to see another company investing in Barnsley to drive growth and create more jobs for local people.
"We look forward to seeing ERIKS continue to grow their business operations in the heart of the borough."
Dan Nicholson, Director of ERIKS Sealing and Polymer, added: "The new machinery is a big investment which will support orders in the UK and overseas, increasing the quality of our work.
"It will also help facilitate future growth for the company as it brings more capabilities, allowing us to expand our offer.
"Our order book is ever-growing, and we still have vacancies to fill, which we hope will be taken by Barnsley people."
