Corby construction technology company lands £600k funding package

Corby-based Green Life Buildings Ltd has received a £600,000 funding package from the Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF) East & South East Midlands Debt Finance, managed by Maven Capital Partners.

The funding will enable the company, which specialises in developing construction technology, to expand its operations and create seven new jobs. As part of its funding plans, Green Life Buildings will be increasing its manufacturing and distribution capacity.

Chris Williams, Managing Director at Green Life Buildings said: “We are very pleased to have received the funding package from MEIF. This will enable us to scale our supply across the UK by increasing our manufacturing capability to deliver the innovative and efficient M2 Advanced Building system to more customers.”

Graham Hall, Investment Manager at Maven said: “The M2 Advanced Building system is an advanced and proven construction technology, perfectly suited to the UK’s undersupplied housing construction market. We’re excited to partner with Chris and his team and look forward to backing them for continued growth.”

Hilary Chipping, SEMLEP Chief Executive, said: “Our area will be at the forefront of the UK’s green recovery so it’s great to hear of the expansion of Green Life Buildings and the new jobs it is creating in this important sector. It’s crucial that we support our innovative businesses to access the investment they need to pursue their growth plans, particularly at this time.”

Lewis Stringer, Senior Manager at the British Business Bank, said: “This investment in Green Life Buildings is evidence that MEIF and its fund managers, such as Maven, remain active and open to supporting innovative businesses looking to grow in the East and South East Midlands.”
