Tailored Heating Supplies gets £40k from development fund
Published:  01 July, 2013

Carlisle-based Tailored Heating Supplies plans to grow its sales team and IT infrastructure with £40k funding from Access to Finance.

John Trenell, managing director, said: “This investment comes at a great time for us. Having established itself over the last 12 months, Tailored Heating Supplies is finding that the service it offers has been well received from the trade and all it needs to develop in a consistent manner is face-to-face contact.”

Maria Ramsdale, advisor at Access to Finance, said: “Tailored Heating Supplies is a classic example of how Access to Finance can help businesses.

“When NatWest was unable to help with a loan, we worked with Mr Trenell to find just the right funding deal for his plans.”

Access To Finance receives its funding from the European Regional Development Fund. The service is part of the Business Growth Hub ( and offers free advice and investment support to businesses in the region that need to raise finance.
