A DEAL has been struck which is doubling the size of a Hyndburn drainage specialist.

Total Pipeline Systems, of Accrington, have secured £290,000 to fund a move to new premises at Empress Mill, in Victoria Street, Clayton-le-Moors.

Four new jobs will be created as the firm acquires a building twice the size of its current base.

Richard White, managing director, said: "The new premises will allow us to keep more stock while a new trade counter is a significant step forwards for us."

The expansion project for the company, which had a record year in 2018, was secured with the assistance of Santander Business Banking.
