Have your say

Melton-based garden furniture wholesalers LeisureBench celebrated 20 per cent business growth last year with help from finance provider FundingKnight.

The company, which has a showroom in Wartnaby and whose head office is in Stathern, has managed to grow over the last two years - with five fully repaid loans over three years from FundingKnight.

The investment boost has helped the firm virtually double its permanent staff (to 11 over two years) and take on five part-timers in the peak summer season. LeisureBench MD Saul Musson said: “With this sort of support we’ve not only been able to build our business but also attract large blue chip customers.”
