04 Sep Our partnership with Barclays
Our corporate partnership with Barclays has allowed us to facilitate the level of growth we’ve experienced over the past 10 years. Moving us from business to corporate banking, Barclays has understood the wants and needs of our business, every step of the way, recommending strategic steps that have enabled us to reach our targets and business goals.
We’ve continually reinvested back into our business, with Barclays’ asset finance allowing us to invest into our factory and manufacturing facilities, especially our cutting-edge machinery. This means we can always ensure we manufacture and deliver the highest quality of products to our customers.
With 45% of our customer transactions being processed through Barclaycard, we’re dedicated to maintaining our relationship with Barclays and are committed to continued growth as we head into our next phase of expansion.
In July, we were honoured to welcome Jes Staley, Group Chief Executive of Barclays, into The Home Space to show him the calibre of showroom and manufacturing facility that Barclays has helped us achieve. We took him on a walk-round of the site, giving him a first-hand experience of how our products are made and what our level of investment looks like in real time. It was Jes’ first visit to Yorkshire (we hope he loved it!) and his team brought with them a journalist from the New York Times!
Barclays is using Express as a corporate client case study for their own marketing material, and has created a series of videos to showcase our partnership. The video is available to view here among some well-known brands!
Starting out in 2007 with £1.2million turnover, we couldn’t have envisaged the level of growth that 10 years would bring. We are now a £24million turnover business, continuing to grow year on year and consistently investing in our business.
