Our aim was always to move out of rented premises eventually and we felt that given the growth in recent years, and looking at our secured order book for 2016 onwards, the time was right to make the move. Since we began trading in 2011, Santander has provided financial support, enabling us to manage our growth.”
Andrew Bullock, Relationship Director, Santander Corporate & Commercial said: “Since we began working with Paul and his team the business has gone from strength to strength.
