Rural Business Case Study: Lynton Lasers
“With strong sales growth expected in both the UK and new export markets, we were keen to invest in our production facilities and open a new clinic and training centre. This project has been the largest single investment in our history and receiving the rural grant funding has been vital to ensure our continued growth. We now have facilities which will enable us to grow sales and meet the ever-increasing demand for our lasers” Dr Jonathan Exley Ph.D. MBA, Managing Director
Lynton Lasers Ltd, based in Holmes Chapel, is the UK’s leading Laser & IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) manufacturer that specialises in the manufacture and supply of aesthetic and surgical lasers to private clinics and the NHS as well as a scientific division developing laser technology to clean and preserve ancient artefacts in museums. With over 20 years experience, the business is not just renowned for developing cutting-edge products but is also leading the market in providing outstanding after-sales and customer support.
Lynton holds a confident position in the UK marketplace, but has recognised the need to expand into other markets. The business has invested in developing new technology to expand its product range, developing and launching Excelight & 3JUVE in preparation for accessing the export marketplace.
The Skills & Growth Company* have supported the business with their growth objectives and with securing rural grant funding through the Cheshire Leader Programme. This included expanding into an adjacent unit to increase manufacturing space, create a bespoke clinic for an on-site training facility and a new office space. The grant was used to bring the project to fruition by contributing to the renovation of both units.
The project completed in December 2017, creating 5 highly skilled jobs and we will continue to support this award-winning business in the future.
