SELLTEC Function room has just been launched in St Helens – a state of the art and modern function room which the owner believes to be a unique offering for the area.

Starting up the business has been an 11 year project which, up until 18 months ago, was funded solely by oner Martin Allen and his the family and was often put on hold while they focused on other projects to finance the function room’s development.

To secure the finance to finish the project, Mr Allen approached banking partner Lloyds TSB Commercial, which provided the six-figure cash injection to complete outstanding work on the property, and the additional funding to fast track Selltec’s completion.

The business is targeting a £500,000 turnover in its first year, and Martin is currently looking to take on up to 10 staff from the area.
