A company that produces health and nutrition supplements, as well as beauty products, has got backing from Rosebud Micro to expand its business and develop its website.
Fleetwood-based Xenca has won funding and support from Lancashire County Council’s finance scheme to grow and develop their business.
The Fleetwood-based company creates its own natural and eco-friendly product ranges, which are sold through its self-employed sales force of associates.
The funding from Rosebud Micro will be used to develop their product range, website and marketing activity.
Rosebud Micro is accessed through Access2Finance, on behalf of Lancashire County Developments Limited (LCDL) – the county council’s economic development department.
County Coun Niki Penney, chair of LCDL said: “The team at Xenca are looking to grow their company and we’re pleased that Rosebud has been able to help and support these plans.
“Xenca’s health and nutrition products are also manufactured locally under licence, so this will provide further economic benefits to the town. We’re looking for ambitious growing businesses, which are based in Lancashire or relocating here. Rosebud Micro could be the answer to unlocking new funding.”
Xenca was formed in 2012 by four directors who make up the management team, and are responsible for beauty & training, finance, marketing and IT. Simon Turner, from Xenca, said: “With Rosebud’s support we’re looking to develop new ranges and develop our website and marketing activity.
“As a company we believe that ‘together we’re better’ and that’s why we’re looking to develop in a way that helps everyone – including our dedicated self-employed sales team.
“By providing new ranges, we hope that it will increase their sales and bring in more money for them – as the team take a share of every product they sell. This will help to create jobs in Fleetwood, where we’re based, as well as self-employed positions further afield for our sales team.”
Marketing director David Butler added: “We work closely with manufacturer VMS Solutions at Thornton and we have recently moved to larger premises. We have around 1,000 associates around the UK and we are actively looking for more. We export to 30 countries.”
