Stephen Smith started up his cabinet-making business Stephen Smith Furniture earlier this year, supplying high-end bespoke furniture and classic car wood trim, and quickly recognised the need for well-equipped and well-located premises.
Mr Smith said: “I’ve received fantastic support setting up the business over the past few months and am delighted at the positive start. Now I’ve secured good quality premises at Northway, I can focus my efforts on growing the business further.”
He has taken Unit E1 at Northway Trading Estate on a three year lease. The end terrace unit offers 968 sq ft (89.93 sq m) of warehouse space, with a full mezzanine floor of equal size.
Rob Holley of Alder King’s Gloucester office said: “The refitted space perfectly suited Mr Smith’s needs and he now has an ideal base from which to build his business. Northway Trading Estate is a popular and successful location with easy access to junction 9 of the M5 motorway and Tewkesbury town centre.”
Grant Cozens, Business Adviser at Gloucestershire Enterprise, said: “We are delighted that Stephen has been able to set up his new business with help from the New Enterprise Allowance scheme. The scheme provides business advice and mentoring to assist and encourage unemployed people to return to work through self-employment. Stephen is a prime example of how successful this can be with hard work and determination and is a role model for others.”
