The Leicestershire-based footwear wholesaler, T&A Holdings, is planning to accelerate growth in international waters thanks to a seven-figure funding package from HSBC UK.

Established in 2004, T&A Holdings has grown to become a leading supplier of shoes for all genders. The company owns subsidiaries T&A Footwear Limited and Heavenly Feet Limited.

T&A Footwear Limited specialises in designing, manufacturing and supplying footwear to major retailers like Tu at Sainsbury's, George at ASDA and Clarks.

Heavenly Feet Limited focuses on designing and supplying its own brand, Heavenly Feet, to a network of over 300 independent retailers, along with partnerships with highstreet retailers such as Next, JD Williams and Shoe Zone.

T&A Holdings works closely with manufacturers across the Far East, including China and Vietnam. Funding from HSBC UK will enable the company to source and purchase plant-based materials as the company invests in designing and manufacturing recyclable footwear.

David Markham, Financial Director at T&A Holdings, said: "This funding from HSBC UK provides an exciting opportunity for us to explore sustainable production opportunities within Asia and bring our products to new and existing customers worldwide.

"As a new customer to HSBC UK, we’ve been impressed by the range of business banking facilities and we’re grateful for the support as we enter the next chapter of our amazing journey."

Chirag Makwana, Relationship Manager at HSBC UK, added: "T&A Footwear and Heavenly Feet are long-established wholesalers and retailers of footwear in the UK. As interest in sustainable fashion continues to increase, we’re excited and delighted to support with boosting growth for both companies internationally."
