ITS Interiors expand to new Dunstable premises with NatWest support

ITS Interiors Ltd a shop fitting company that was started by husband and wife Martin & Karen Quirke from a converted shed in their back garden has completed a move to new 4,189sq ft trading premises in Dunstable.

Funding for the new trading premises has been provided by their banking partners NatWest.

The company provides a full range of shop fitting and modification services to the UK retail sector, undertaking contracts across the country. From starting the business in 2009 the company now turns over in excess of £1m per annum and their continued growth has necessitated this move to new premises.

The unit at the Apex Business Centre in Dunstable provides the company with additional office space together with warehousing facilities and areas to assemble sales units for offsite jobs. The company has continued to employ a number of local trades people on both permanent and temporary contracts. It is hoped that continued growth in current orders will lead to further employment opportunities later on this year.

NatWest has provided the company with a loan of £130,000 to support the purchase of the freehold of the Dunstable unit.

Talking about the move, Martin Quirke, founder and director of ITS Interiors said: "This is a big moment for us as a company and in a way it is the culmination of a lot of hard work over the last couple of years. We desperately needed more space to keep pace with our growing order book. We feel that we have found a suitable home, which provides great transport links to help us meet our UK contracts. It is very exciting to finally move in and we hope that this proves to be a happy home as the business continues to grow."

John Bull from NatWest in Luton who arranged the loan added: "Moving premises is always a big moment for any business. Martin & Karen have grown a successful business and the move to Dunstable provides the right foundation as they target further growth in the coming years."
