“With the support of our new bankers Barclays, we’ve been able to negotiate facilities including term loan and working capital and this provides us with the flexibility to take the business to the next level, building on our reputation for excellence in service, quality, product availability and customer relationship.

“We’re excited about delivering on our ambitious expansion targets for the future.”
