Grant helps Suffolk business Roland Plastics cut lighting costs


Roland Plastics are a Suffolk based manufacturing firm specialising in the supply of bespoke plastic injected mouldings and assemblies in a wide range of thermoplastic materials. They have recently been awarded grant funding from the Business Energy Efficiency (BEE) Anglia project to upgrade their lighting to LED in the workshop areas.

Following an independent energy audit, Roland Plastics successfully applied for a grant of £3,500.

This will support future growth within their business, while working to protect our environment.
