Funds fuel firm’s growth

A Morpeth-based firm has expanded after purchasing a third petrol station.

A £560,000 funding package from Santander Corporate & Commercial has enabled Khizer Ltd to acquire a petrol retail unit in Wallsend. It already runs stations in Nedderton, Northumberland, and Moor Lane, South Shields.

Managing director Khizer Khan said: “Our business has developed real momentum and we are excited about our plans to expand further.

“We are grateful for the support from Santander, which has been extremely helpful in understanding our ambitions and taking into account our individual needs.”
