Wilkinson Star receives North West Fund for Business loan

Welding equipment stockist Wilkinson Star is the latest company to receive a North West Fund for Business loan via FW Capital, the company that manages the North West Fund’s £35m business loans fund.

The £200,000 loan provides extra working capital for the company, with which to expand its product range, improve stock levels to meet latent demand and increase its sales revenues.

Established more than 40 years ago, Wilkinson Star supplies more than 2,500 distributors from its purpose-built 55,000ft2 Worsley sales and distribution facility.

In addition to its UK and export sales operations, Wilkinson Star also provides NVQ/VRQ-level training for apprentices and more experienced staff on the latest welding equipment.
