“The cash injection from NPIF is instrumental in our future growth. It is supporting our plans to increase our range of butyl products and the use of another innovative machine to enhance our manufacturing productivity.”

Mike Summers, Managing Director, Specialist Technical Products

Specialist Technical Products Ltd  secured six-figure investment from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, as part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

Founded in 2001, the company is based in Winsford, Cheshire. They manufacture butyl tape products which are used in a wide variety of construction markets to meet the specific applications of its worldwide customer base. 

The Cheshire-based manufacturer used the funding to support working capital needs as it expanded its product range and invested in new machinery. In addition, the funding backed the company’s involvement in a solar energy project which installed solar panels on the firm’s facility to generate electricity for their own use and put back into the grid.

Specialist Technical Products invested in a new purpose-built manufacturing facility in 2011 to increase production capacity to maintain its short production led times to customers which is a highly important requirement to many of the markets it supplies.

The first NPIF investment phase has now completed with the British Business Bank launching the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund II in March 2024.
