MANTA MAKES LIMITED
Manta Makes is a small, family-run business operating from Ringwood, Hampshire. The edge of the New Forest is a wonderful place to get ideas going, and one such idea it has helped to generate is Manta Makes. Founded in 2015 by Paul and Samantha, a husband and wife team, Manta started as a wood engraving company to provide custom wedding decorations. Since then it has grown massively, moving from the dining table to the garden shed and now to dedicated premises, with team expansions too!
Wedding/ celebration gifts for all the family!
Driven by passion, we put our heart into everything we do. Our bespoke pieces are carefully created and this we believe helps us stand out from our competitors. The business started with laser engraved wood, making signs, save-the-dates, and table decorations. Now our portfolio has expanded, and includes a variety of gifts such as mugs, jewellery, cushions, and keyrings! We have also made sure to keep a number of our gifts within an affordable price range to ensure that our market reach is as long as it can be. Moreover, we understand that the planet is a precious thing. As a result, we only use FSC-certified wood harvested ethically from sustainable forests. This ensures that Manta Makes is an eco-friendly company that isn’t harming the earth.
Now we are looking to extend our reach further. We are delighted to bring you the opportunity to invest as we enter a phase of expansion. We hope to reach more new customers and continue to grow what was once a little dream. We’re already one of the top UK sellers on Etsy, and we hope to reach new heights with your help! We have over 37,000 Etsy reviews and an average rating of a full five stars! With your support, we can continue to cater to the growing demand.
Our score of medium risk differs from Equifax’s report because our assessment considers Manta Makes' latest business accounts and shows a more accurate performance of the company throughout the year. The director Samantha Mirabelle is providing a personal guarantee, which means should the business fail, and there are insufficient assets within the business to repay the loan, we can look to the director to repay any shortfall on repayment. Looking at the company’s financials show a consistent and positive Cash Flow and sufficient EBITDA that covers the interest and additional debt. The director has a strong financial profile, and the company currently holds an Equifax Report of B+.
As the majority of lending to the business is at a fixed rate, they will not be immediately affected by interest rate increases.
