This, in addition to the opening of brand new production facilities and offices near Slough in Berkshire in October, represents the springboard for the company’s ongoing success. The company has also secured a substantial capital investment from its parent company in Europe, which further ensures it will meet its objective to be a category leader within the next two to three years.
