Boost for work­wear firm

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A FAM­ILY run work­wear and pro­tec­tive cloth­ing spe­cial­ist has been boosted by a £50,000 fi­nance fa­cil­ity.

L&J Work­wear, which cus­tomises a range of work­wear prod­ucts, has se­cured the fund­ing from Manch­ester-based in­voice fi­nance spe­cial­ists from Pos­i­tive Cash­flow Fi­nance.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Phil He­witt has 40 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the sec­tor and es­tab­lished L&J in Oc­to­ber 2005.

Phil runs the busi­ness, based on El­iz­a­beth Street, Mac­cles­field, with his son Jor­dan, who has ex­panded the cus­tomer base con­sid­er­ably over the last 12 months. Last Au­gust the firm was em­ployed by Team GB to em­broi­der their spon­sor’s logo on their new kit.

But chas­ing cus­tomers and wait­ing for cus­tomers to pay was time con­sum­ing. With the new fund­ing now help­ing with credit con­trol and ad­vanc­ing funds, the firm said it can con­cen­trate on in­creas­ing client base and grow­ing the busi­ness.

Phil said: “With the fund­ing in place and the headache of car­ry­ing out credit con­trol re­moved, we are in an ex­cel­lent po­si­tion to con­tinue our growth.”

Nick Chap­man, sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager said: “L&J are a prime ex­am­ple of a hard work­ing fam­ily busi­ness with bags of po­ten­tial.

“With the right fund­ing in place, they are now in an ex­cel­lent po­si­tion to con­tinue their growth and in­crease sales.”

Pos­i­tive is a spe­cial­ist in­de­pen­dent in­voice fi­nance provider with of­fices in Manch­ester and Birm­ing­ham sup­port­ing busi­nesses through­out the UK.
