AFIRM in Widnes spe­cial­is­ing in se­cu­rity has agreed a six fig­ure funding deal with a bank to buy a unit on a busi­ness park.

Ra­dium Se­cu­rity Sys­tems has been sup­ported by Royal Bank Of Scot­land.

The busi­ness has now bought its ex­ist­ing trad­ing premises for an undis­closed sum at Unit 4 on Turn­stone Busi­ness Park.

A se­quence of re­fur­bish­ment works has now be­gun on the premises to im­prove fa­cil­i­ties and op­er­a­tional ease.

A new show­room is be­ing cre­ated on the ground floor for cus­tomers to ex­pe­ri­ence the tech­nol­ogy on of­fer.

Ra­dium’s director Paul Robin­son said: “We are re­ally pleased that the ac­qui­si­tion of the premises has been suc­cess­ful.

“We have op­er­ated from here for the last two years and the prop­erty suits our busi­ness well. It also of­fers plenty of space to ac­com­mo­date on­go­ing growth.

“The sup­port we have re­ceived from Royal Bank Of Scot­land and our re­la­tion­ship manager Tom Parry has been ex­cel­lent.

“Tom has been on hand through­out the com­plex ac­qui­si­tion process to pro­vide us with any guid­ance and as­sis­tance we have needed.

“I am re­ally pleased that we chose to work with the bank and look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing our re­la­tion­ship in the fu­ture.”

Es­tab­lished in 1982, Ra­dium pro­vides hi-tech alarm and se­cu­rity sys­tems to homes and busi­nesses across the UK.

In re­cent years the busi­ness – which em­ploys 13 mem­bers of staff – has ex­pe­ri­enced strong growth with turnover in­creas­ing 40% in the last two years.

The firm has also re­cently taken part in an in­ter­view on do­mes­tic CCTV for BBC’s In­side Out pro­gramme which will be aired in Septem­ber.

Mr Parry added: “I am pleased that we have been able to sup­port Paul and Joanne to make the next step in their com­pany’s devel­op­ment.

“The ac­qui­si­tion of their trad­ing premises is a sound in­vest­ment and will sup­port the busi­ness as it grows.

“We have en­joyed get­ting to know the busi­ness and are look­ing for­ward to sup­port­ing them go­ing for­ward.” ●
