Dreamtex’s workforce consists of eight members of staff.

Its products are sold by a wide range of high-profile retail outlets such as Argos, Amazon, Asda, Primark, Tesco, B&Q, Debenhams and Claire’s.

Dreamtex is planning to use the funding from Aldermore to invest in products and materials and support its cash flow.

Anthony Duckworth, managing director at Dreamtex, said: “We have worked with Aldermore now for four years and have been very pleased with the level of service and dedication the team have given to Dreamtex.

“It has certainly made our job of managing the debtors ledger and credit control a lot easier.

“They were able to support our business through a very busy period, resulting in rapid growth, and they provided a brand new facility built around our business’s needs in a very short amount of time.”

Andrew Dixon, commercial 
director for Specialist Finance at Aldermore, said: “The experienced management team and strong business plan made Dreamtex an attractive company for us to support.

“We’re pleased to have been able to help the company to grow over the years by providing the finance they need.”
