Hima-Sella to expand significantly following £4m in new funding

Independent engineering company Hima-Sella, which specialises in the supply of integrated safety, control and automation systems, is to target growth opportunities and hire additional staff following £4m in funding from Santander Corporate & Commercial. The funding from Santander will enable Hima-Sella to invest in expanding its offering in the rail control sector – a market in which the company sees strong opportunities – as well as continuing to explore further opportunities in the oil and gas and petrochemicals sectors. The funding has enabled Midlands and North West based Hima-Sella to continue to invest in its engineering capability and functional safety expertise including the hire of three graduates from the University of Sheffield, bringing its total staff to over 90 people. Jon Bennett, relationship director, Santander Corporate & Commercial, said: 'We're delighted to be able to support such a successful company which is, in our view, set for a period of strong growth.' John Blackwell, managing director, Hima-Sella, commented: 'The support from Santander Corporate & Commercial has been fundamental to our investment and growth plans, particularly with regards to the rail industry'.
