Another $285,000 was matched through a low-interest loan from Citizens Bank in cooperation with the state for a total award of $570,000. The funds were used to purchase new state-of- the-art manufacturing equipment the company's Seaford facility, which produces plastic balls that are shipped to dis- tributors for such diverse products as sail boats, ballpoint pens, musical instruments, intravenous injection backflow valves and drip coffee makers.

Citizens Bank will offer up to $1,250,000 in low-interest loans to manufacturing and industrial companies to improve product lines and preserve and expand jobs under the competitiveness fund and the strategic fund. Citizens Bank will also offer eli- gible technology based companies up to $50,000 in low-interest loans through the technology based seed fund. "This partnership with Citizens Bank will continue to leverage the benefits of my New Economy Initiative," said Minner. "This partnership has been instrumental in stimulating business expansion and job growth in Delaware, and I thank the leadership at Citizens Bank for its continued commit- ment and investment in Delaware's economy." "Citizens Bank is pleased to support Gov. Minner and the state of Delaware to stimulate business creation in the communities we serve," said Vible. "The Citizens Business Bank has been a valu- able tool and we look forward to continuing to work with the gov- ernor to help companies in Delaware and provide them with the support they need to grow and create new jobs." The state and Citizens Bank have benefited businesses and stimulated the economy through this partnership since June 2004.
