NatWest helps Dyno-Rod Franchise move to new base

A business that holds the Dyno-Rod franchise for large parts of Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire has moved to larger premises after securing funding from NatWest commercial banking.

Roger Little Ltd has relocated its operations from two separate rented sites in Stockport and Macclesfield into a larger property on Whitehall Industrial Estate in Stockport. NatWest provided a six figure sum loan to help fund the purchase.

The move to larger premises is the result of continued business growth which has seen headcount increase from 35 to 55 during the last four years and turnover exceed the £3m barrier.

Founded in 1966, Roger Little was one of the first Dyno-Rod franchises. It provides a comprehensive 24-hour drain cleaning and repair service to domestic, commercial and industrial customers. The range of work includes domestic unblock work all the way through to large bore commercial drain repairs and cleaning using a recently purchased tanker jetting unit.

The company is one of the 10 largest Dyno-Rod franchises in the UK and has an extensive client base ranging from blue chip companies to local restaurants and the general public. The company also has a Dyno Plumbing franchise which provides a wide range of plumbing services from servicing leaks to full bathroom installations and central heating installation. They also service commercial plumbing and gas installations.

Suzanne Savage, Director of Roger Little Ltd, said: "Operating from two different sites was not ideal and limited our plans to develop the business. Bringing everything together under one roof has been a priority for some time and we are delighted to have completed the move.

"It gives us the chance to reconfigure the way in which we work so that the business can operate as efficiently as possible and also allows us to look at what additional services we can provide customers."

John Paulson, NatWest Senior Relationship Manager said: Sue and the rest of her management team have shown considerable business acumen to create one of the largest Dyno-Rod franchises in the UK. Operating from one location will benefit the business and we are very pleased to have helped them make this move."
