Regaining family control

Responsive finance puts T&P Print back where it belongs

Since 1922, the family firm now known as T&P Print Ltd has been offering a range of commercial printing services from its Bradford base. For most of its history, the company traded as Bakes & Lord Ltd – but in 2014, the Woodhead family sold the business to investors in Scotland. Financial losses followed, and in 2015, the firm went into administration.

The founder’s son, Neil Woodhead, then decided to come out of retirement and bring the business back under family control. He needed to move quickly, and Reward helped with Business Finance within one week. He has now retaken charge at the company, and is determined to keep it in family hands.

As Neil explains, our speedy response played an important part in his move to restore his family business: “Reward was able to begin the process in a much quicker time than the banks. The funds allowed us to secure the assets and begin planning for growth under the name of T&P Print Ltd. There is a huge opportunity to attract new corporate clients within the area, and the finance from Reward means we can target more customers and increase our workload.”
