XBlades UK makes sports footwear and clothing, favoured by leading rugby league and union stars. It was the first brand to develop a bladed outsole, which is now used in sports boots around the world.
The company first came to Reward for help to fund the gap between supplying goods and receiving customers’ payments. Through Invoice Finance Plus, we arranged the money XBlades UK was owed – and then provided additional cash-flow funding to help the business acquire stock to meet increasing demand and accelerate growth.
Our willingness to go beyond traditional invoice finance has made a big difference to XBlades UK’s future plans. As Sean Miller, the company’s managing director, said: “Reward’s support is already proving invaluable as we accelerate our growth strategy as one of the leading sportswear brands in the UK and Ireland.”
