In 2016 Portman helped Boost to purchase the trampoline equipment for their brand new trampoline park in Northampton. The business is located in a 30,000sqft warehouse next to the Riverside Retail Park.
When the park owners approached Portman, they had already decided on the equipment that they would like to use – this was supplied by USA-based FunSpot.
We really wanted to go for the best equipment available, and the equipment from FunSpot offered everything we were looking for. We were concerned that we may struggle to get finance as the equipment was being purchase from abroad, but our Account Manager assured us there would be no issues – and there weren’t!
The park has had a fantastic first year, and is listed on TripAdvisor and one of the top five things to do in Northampton.
“What really sets Boost apart is it’s ties to the community. When we came up with the idea of launching the business, we envisaged it becoming a hub for the community. We have partnerships in place with a number of local sports teams and charities, and we hold numerous fund raising events for our charity of the year” said Kevin Fyffe, of Boost Trampoline Parks.
Twelve months on, and Boost is gearing up to launch it’s second site in Leicester and Portman have helped with the purchasing of the equipment for the new site:
“We are very excited about becoming a multi-site operator. The ability to open our second site is largely due to Portman’s help – if we hadn’t been able to spread the cost of our initial fit out, we probably wouldn’t be in the position we are today had we needed to pay for all of our equipment up front.”
