Deeside kitchen and bathroom firm secures funding to grow

HM Business Growth has helped a fast-growing North Wales company to move ahead with its ambitious expansion plans.

The TKB Group, set up by husband and wife Stephen and Emma Trollope three years ago, produces temporary kitchens and bathrooms.

The ‘pods’ are designed for people whose homes have been hit by water, fire or flood damage as well as for those undertaking house renovations and extensions.

HM Business Growth, the business consultancy arm of law firm Hillyer McKeown, has been working with the TKB Group, providing Stephen and Emma with strategic business planning.

It also introduced the couple to Finance Wales to negotiate additional funding to support the company's growth plans.

New products aimed at housing associations and student accommodation providers are now being launched thanks to the funding support.

The business has also relocated to larger premises in Deeside from Hawarden to manage increasing demand.

Stephen Trollope said: “We are extremely grateful for the support we have had from HM Business Growth and Finance Wales.

“We have significant growth plans for our business and the funding support we now have in place will help us to continue our rapid expansion.”

TKB Group is on course for a turnover of £2m this year and is aiming to achieve revenues of more than £7m within five years.

Ray Howard, managing director of HM Business Growth, said: “We have worked closely with Stephen and Emma to map out their business strategy.

“Once this had been done, we introduced them to Finance Wales confident that TKB Group was a business it would want to back.”

Chris Hayward, investment executive at Finance Wales, added: “TKB is an exciting business with a solid track record and a robust plan for future sustained growth.

“We are pleased to support the business's expansion plans with a loan from the Wales Business Fund.”
