No hiding from growth ambitions for Screen With Envy

Screen with Envy

Screen With Envy

Screen With Envy is an international online retailer which was founded in 2017. The founder and CEO Sophie Birkert noticed there was a gap in the UK market for stylish and affordable garden screens. The business pioneered the use of an advanced wood composite which has the look and feel of a wood product but easier to install and with far greater durability.

The screens are used for privacy and decoration and are designed in-house by Sophie herself, along with many complimentary products.

Screen With Envy has achieved strong growth since launching and now the Santander Growth team are providing them with innovative and flexible funding which will support their working capital requirements. This will enable the business to focus on their people infrastructure which will strengthen their operations, so they have a more robust platform for growth. 

We are excited to be working with Santander to fund the next stage of Screen With Envy's growth. They are the perfect partner for ambitious entrepreneurs, they understand our business and our aspirations. We look forward to growing our business into the UK's biggest and most successful retailer of own-design screening, fencing and partitioning.
