Scarisbrick entrepeneur given business boost
by David Simister

A SCARISBRICK entrepeneur is the 50th person in the north west to have been given a Government grant to boost his business, it has been announced this week.

Jordan Boynton, who runs West Lancashire firm Cerberus Chemicals, which manufactures chemical products for companies across the UK, has been given the support as part of the regional Start Up Loan programme, a £110m national government programme which aids young people going into business.

Mr Boynton, 22, said: “When I was deciding what kind of business I wanted to set up I thought long and hard about what industries have a big influence on me as an individual – what did I come into daily contact with at home and at work? The majority of things within a home or business come in to contact with a chemical or two at some point so I knew this was an industry that had huge potential.

”After almost a year spent researching and setting up relationships with suppliers I took the plunge and decided to invest in a relatively large amount of chemical stock. We began with manufacturing steam room milks and due to the aforementioned research were able to provide a top quality service and unbeatable product. This in turn led to usvery quickly picking up some of the top hotels and spas in the UK as clients.“

Nationally more than 1,000 loans have been given to young entrepeneurs setting up their own businesses, and in January additional funding for the scheme in Lancashire was announced.

David Cameron, the Prime Minister, said of the scheme: ”This clearly demonstrates the ambition and drive people in this country have to create a business and I am pleased that Start-Up Loans are helping more and more entrepreneurs who start small but think big transform their ideas into viable, growing businesses.

“I am on the side of people who want to work hard and get on in life, and it is by backing aspiration and the businesses of tomorrow, as well as the businesses of today, that we are equipping the UK to compete in the global race.”

Young people aged 18 – 30 can email or visit to learn more about the Start Up Loans and register.
