Distinction Group

Distinction Group is one of the largest family run contract furniture manufacturers in the UK. They have been fitting out 4 and 5 star hotels, offices and residential developments nationally and internationally for over 30 years.

In 2019, Distinction Group moved its banking to Santander to drive long-term growth. This included funding to purchase trading premises after 30 years of renting and support to win and manage a large contract with a key client.

We moved to Santander in 2019 and it’s refreshing to work with such a proactive, efficient and friendly team and receive a very high level of customer support. I highly recommend Santander to any business looking for a bank who provide a highly professional and personal service.

Mark Eliot

CEO, Distinction Group

When coronavirus heavily disrupted the supply chain, a Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan (CBILS) was secured to safeguard the business which meant they could continue investing in future growth.

The Distinction Group is a well established British business that trades internationally and has a strong reputation worldwide. We’ve drawn on expertise from across Santander to put a range of services in place to support the business’s ambitions, both in the UK and abroad. We’re proud to support Distinction Group’s management team so the business is well placed to continue on its successful path.
