A Manchester linen manufacturer has expanded into new premises after securing a funding deal from the Royal Bank of Scotland – RBS.
Duvet Pillow and Linen Co has relocated to new premises after making a multi-million pound investment secured with funding received from Royal Bank of Scotland.
Established in 2009, Manchester linen manufacturer Duvet Pillow and Linen Co is a family run business and a leading UK manufacturer and distributor of filled products including duvets, pillows and mattress protection. The company is owned by Amer Khan, his wife Ayesha Khan and mother Shahnaz Khan, who have over 50 years’ experience in the textile industry and work with both retail and contract customers.
Robert Taylor, Relationship Director, Royal Bank of Scotland said:
“From my first meeting with Amer I could see his entrepreneurial spirit and aspirations to grow the company. I am delighted to provide funding which has helped with Duvet Pillow and Linen Co’s expansion strategy. The new premises is impressive and offers plenty of scope for future growth due to the increased capacity and the potential for future job creation.”
The move to new premises in Salford from Red Bank in Manchester, supports the company’s impressive growth and will give space to accommodate its future expansion. Currently the business achieves a turnover of £7m, a figure which is expected to increase by over 40% in the next two years alone.
Housing the firm’s 33 members of staff, the new 95,600 sq ft premises on Astor Road include manufacturing and warehouse facilities along with head office administration.
Amer Khan, Director Duvet Pillow and Linen Co said:
“We are really pleased with our new premises. As a Manchester linen manufacturer, the growth we have achieved during the last eight years had meant that we had well outgrown our previous base and were struggling to accommodate further growth. The new facility has provided us with plenty of additional capacity which has enabled us to improve our production efficiencies and increase the number of contracts we can fulfil.
“Duvet Pillow and Linen Co has a bright future and the relocation plays a key role in aiding us to achieve our corporate objectives. It will enable us to continue to grow in a steady and sustainable manner, providing plenty of space for future growth.”
