Lincoln sport events supplies firm expands

Fresh start: A sporting events business has moved from a village garage to a central Lincoln office with a bustling team.

A Lincoln sporting events supplies business has moved on from operating out of a village garage to an office space in the city centre.

Swift Medals, set up by University of Lincoln graduate Chris Dolan, is now working from Sparkhouse on Rope Walk.

Previously, Chris worked out of his garage in the Nettleham village, but growth over the last 18 months has led to the move.

He also expanded his team to five with the move, including his younger sister, Jenna.

Swift Medals’ custom medals and events supplies have been featured on Eurosport, Sky Sports and 4Sport, helping to boost interest in the company.

Chris Dolan said: “I started the business from a converted garage 18 months ago in Nettleham, and have since established a solid reputation not only in the UK but also in other global markets.

“Although we will miss where it all started we can’t wait to move into our fresh space and push the business to the next level.

“Sparkhouse was an obvious choice with it being in the heart of innovation, and creativity in Lincolnshire.

“We would like to thank all of customers, friends and family for their support over the last year.”
