Budge Brands acquires Birmingham distribution centre following £1m in funding from Santander

Budge Brands, the Solihull-based brand owner of Premier Estates Wine, House of Premier Vodka and World Traveller Wines, is opening a new 73,000 sq ft distribution centre near the centre of Birmingham after securing £1m in funding from Santander Corporate & Commercial. The opening is in response to a significant increase in demand from Budge's clients, which include Booker, Costcutter, NISA, B&M Stores and Marstons. Along with the funding to support the new Birmingham depot, Budge also attended Santander's London Breakthrough Moments Box last November, which resulted in an introduction to advertising agency Saatchi Masius. Budge has also taken part in a US business breakthrough roundtable with a view to joining the next Santander US Trade Mission. Budge Brands managing director Budge Dhariwal commented: 'The support from Santander Corporate & Commercial has been nothing short of exceptional, and I look forward to working with the team at the bank to help take this business to even greater heights of success'.
