Surfs up with six-figure deal

Surf and Turf Instant Shelters has acquired new premises after securing a six-figure funding deal.

The Warrington-based company has purchased a building adjacent to its existing offices and warehouse facility on Tatton Court, Kingsland Grange. This is to be merged with its current site.

It acquired an additional unit on the industrial estate last year which it will now sell and relocate operations to the new site.

Founded in 2001, Surf & Turf Instant Shelters supplies shelters, mini marquees, inflatable event tents, banners and displays to the event, exhibition, market, motorsport and leisure industries.

The Royal Bank of Scotland provided a six-figure funding deal to support the purchase of the site.

Simon Lunt, managing director of Surf & Turf Instant Shelter, said: "We are thrilled that RBS has supported us in the purchase of our new premises. By acquiring our neighbouring building and consolidating our facilities into one unit we will benefit enormously from improvements in logistics and efficiency.

"We can now keep the print and design team all under one roof. The merger of the two buildings will also provide us with plenty of extra capacity to accommodate our planned growth both in the UK and abroad."

Gavin Elmes, relationship manager at RBS, added: "The purchase of the new neighbouring premises is a sensible move for the business and will help the company to make significant logistical improvements.

"We are pleased that we have been able to provide Surf & Turf Instant Shelters with the necessary funding to facilitate the move and look forward to working with them as they look to expand into the export markets."
