The owner of a Sefton business has praised the role of Invest Sefton in helping his new venture become established.
Service Electrical Distributors
Limited opened in August 2019 in Bootle’s Kingfisher Business Park.
The business, which currently
employs 10 staff, was established by Marc Redfern, who has 23 years’ experience
within the Electrical Wholesaling Industry.
With the contacts and
experience Marc has built up within the industry he has managed to establish a
viable business, forming key partnerships with social housing providers,
electrical contractors, hotels, commercial and industrial customers, end users,
education providers and the general public.
Invest Sefton has supported
Marc with identifying local networking and business support opportunities.
Initial sales projections have been exceeded, with Service Electrical quickly
establishing themselves as one of the region’s ‘go to’ electrical wholesalers.
Marc said: “It was a massive
and scary decision leaving a large successful company to start my own business,
but I firmly believed in my ability and the ability of my employees. The
initial growth forecasts have been more than exceeded and I very much look
forward to continuing this exciting journey we have started. Clients seem to be
finding us through word of mouth and that is testament to the commitment and
effort we have put into the business. We greatly appreciate the support Colin
Hickey from Invest Sefton has given us and look forward to working very closely
with Colin on future growth plans.”
Colin Hickey, Business Growth
Adviser at Invest Sefton, said: “From the initial meeting I have been impressed
with Marc’s commitment and ambitions for this venture. The team he has put
together is both friendly and knowledgeable and I look forward to supporting
him in the future success of Service Electrical Distributors Limited.”
Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said: “It is great for the borough to see businesses such as Service Electrical Distributors thrive. Invest Sefton play a key role in supporting new businesses in the borough, which is vital for Sefton’s future economic growth.”
