Portfolio Executive

The support from the Development Bank of Wales this year has made the most incredible difference. Having worked so hard to build our business over the last five years, we were faced with some pretty tough choices at the start of the first national lockdown. The loan gave us the capital to fund stock and the confidence to continue with our growth plans knowing that we had security behind us.
