L&J Workwear Set For Growth

Macclesfield based, L&J Workwear (“L&J”) has secured a £50,000 finance facility from Manchester based, invoice finance specialists from Positive Cashflow Finance (“Positive”).

 Managing director, Phil Hewitt has 40 years’ experience in the sector and established L&J in October 2005. Phil’s runs the business with his son Jordan who has expanded the customer base considerably over the last 12 months.     

 L&J customise a wide variety of work-wear products for a number of sectors including haulage, manufacturing and retail. In a competitive industry, they distinguish themselves by providing a high quality service and building good relationships with their clients.

 Chasing customers and waiting for customers to pay was time consuming and stunting the growth for L&J. With Positive now helping with the credit control and advancing funds, they can concentrate on increasing their client base and growing their business.

 Phil Hewitt, managing director at L&J Workwear said: “With the funding in place and the headache of carrying out credit control removed, we are in an excellent position to continue our growth.

 “We felt that Positive were the right funder for us, as they are local, owner managed and took the time to understand our business and what we wanted to achieve.”

 Nick Chapman, sales and marketing manager said: “L&J are a prime example of a hard working family business with bags of potential. With the right funding in place, they are now in an excellent position to continue their growth and increase sales.”
