Investing in SMEs with growth potential across County Durham
Since we first opened our Durham office in 2017 we have invested over £30 million into ambitious businesses across County Durham and the wider North East region. Many of these SMEs operate in the region's key industries including manufacturing and engineering, technology, digital, science technology, and professional services.
Our local portfolio spans a range of high growth businesses, including the largest independent engineering business in County Durham, Dyer Engineering, innovative employee engagement platform, Oak Engage, and the largest small-batch craft distillery in the region, Durham Distillery.
