Expertise Shortfall


A leading pyrotechnics manufacturing firm was struggling to get to grips with how to manage and optimise its retail growth when it turned to Essendon to help with a short-term financing fix.


  • Provided a £200,000 bridging loan facility.
  • Introduced the business to a trusted and highly experienced partner who is now working with the firm to manage its accounting function and deliver meaningful management information – keeping the team on the straight and narrow, and helping them to focus on what’s important within the business.
  • Shared our strategic business thinking and advice with the team to help them develop a comprehensive and cohesive European retail distribution strategy.


With the company stabilised and the bridging loan repaid, the company’s future is bright and negotiations are progressing as it pursues several retail distribution opportunities.
