Building on this success, Expion is to use the new funding support from Santander Corporate & Commercial to open up to two further offices in the UK, in addition to growing headcount at its established locations in Huddersfield, Leeds and Silverstone. Expion’s three-year plan also includes increasing staff numbers to in excess of 50 and growing turnover above £10 million. 

James Didgiunaitis, Director, Expion, said: “The growth of Expion over the past five years has been exceptional, and it has been great to be part of such a successful, fast-growth business. We are always looking to grow Expion further and the support from Santander Corporate & Commercial will be fundamental to our future three-year growth strategy.”
