RJ Clark Engineering is the first business for Mr Clark who has vast experience in the design, manufacturing of tooling for the foundry industry.
The founder, and skilled engineer said: "Opening my first business in Netherton and created new jobs in the engineering sector in the midst of a pandemic and the heart of industry feels like a dream come true.
"Opening and managing a business is no easy task and that in itself has been challenging, but rewarding. Understanding business finance and accessing the right funding package was crucial to starting RJ Clark Ltd.
Accessing finance for entrepreneurs and small businesses isn't easy, especially with the myriad of options because of Covid-19, but Central Business Finance came recommended and has a strong record of supporting manufacturing businesses in the region."
Chris Brown, director of Central Business Finance, added; "Seeing RJ Clark open and ready for business when businesses are closing because of the pandemic is a great accomplishment. Supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses achieve growth across the Midlands and seeing RJ Clark Ltd come to fruition from concept to completion is a privilege – not to mention see the creation of 5 new jobs for the area!"
Mr Clark added: "Central Business Finance took the time to understand what I wanted to achieve, what are my plans for the future and really understand both the financial market and the manufacturing industry."
Central Business Finance, has already supported over 300 businesses in 2020 with commercial finance to access funding to either continue trading or start a new business.
