Leicestershire bakery gear up for the future with new £15m facility

Newby Castleman, has helped one of Leicestershire’s fast-growing family businesses to open a new state-of-the-art facility.

Geary’s Bakeries has added more than 50% to its production capacity since 2010, after buying up two additional units neighbouring its main facility to keep up with demand.

Having won a major contract with one of the UK’s largest supermarket chains to supply its craft bread, Geary’s Bakeries now produces over 25m loaves a year, prompting a £15m investment into a new 60,000sq ft baking facility at Glenfield which began production late last year. This extra capacity will allow them, in time, to quadruple their present output.

Jason Geary said: “We’ve always had a very good relationship with Newby Castleman, we know we can ask anything of them and they do a thorough, professional job every time.

“They provided us with support and assistance at a key stage of our company’s reorganisation, when we moved to new headquarters in 2010. The business has grown exponentially since then and Newby Castleman have played a vital role in helping us to manage the challenges that are associated with that in terms of handling our finances.

“We are very excited about the move to our new facility in Glenfield, which presents us with the chance to achieve further growth and build on our first-class reputation. We’ve been able to rely on Newby Castleman’s support and advice whenever requested, which has been important in enabling us to tie up the acquisition of the new premises.

“Newby Castleman has been a pillar of help and assistance to the company across the years, helping to guide us through times both good and challenging. We are looking forward to working together as we move into the next chapter of our growth.”

Partner Stephen Castleman said: “We pride ourselves on building deep, lasting client relationships, immersing ourselves into their businesses and ensuring that not only are they fully compliant in all areas, but they have the best financial set-up possible in order to facilitate growth.

“To offer our assistance to Geary’s Bakeries in taking this next step has been very rewarding. We are proud to play whatever role we can in helping such a dynamic, ambitious brand to flourish.”
