Sue Barnard From British Business Bank & Northern Powerhouse Revisit Frank Olsen HQ

We are sharing a very proud moment this month when Sue Barnard from British Business Bank & Northern Powerhouse visited Frank Olsen HQ.
Five years ago, Sue and her team believed in our vision, and we were the first Cheshire based business to receive support via the Northern Powerhouse Fund. It was wonderful to welcome Sue back to our new extended offices and show her where we are today.

Proud to show the excellent national retailers we work with, the new products we have in development, and indeed to meet the growing team.
Charlie Graybook, Founder and Managing Director of Frank Olsen Furniture, said: “The funding from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund was very much at the start of our journey and really enabled us to hit the ground running.

“When we first set up in 2016, securing access to finance was extremely challenging. NPIF enabled us to get our initial stock off the ground, and helped us fulfil our very first orders. With steady growth over the years and with the pandemic affecting businesses from all sectors, we’re excited for the future of the company, especially as we plan on entering European markets.”
