A Nottingham dog collar supplier is set to create new jobs after moving to bigger premises.
BullyBillows, has relocated to a 7,100 square foot unit on Rani Drive in the Basford area of the city, following a deal brokered by NG Chartered Surveyors.
The move comes after the company, which provides premium K9 accessories including dog collars, harnesses and leads, saw a rise in demand for its products, meaning it needed extra space to store its ranges.
Joint managing directors Anthony Koumi and Benjamin Billows say the move has already generated two new jobs and revealed that BullyBillows is looking to employ up to four more staff in the next coming months.
Anthony said: “The move to Rani Drive was driven by an ever-growing demand for our brand, and our need to implement new systems and hire more staff.
“We have moved to larger locations three times in the last 24 months, we originally started working out of our spare room in the early stages of the business. We outgrew our previous unit within months and we found we had hundreds of thousands of pounds of stock with nowhere to store it.”
He added: “We are now able to open our stockist portal (wholesale) as we have over 160 and growing companies based all across the globe ready to stock our products in their shops offline and online. We couldn’t do this before as it was impossible to fulfil orders due to lack of room and staff along with trying to keep our stock levels replenished with the demand.
“Our new premises will give me and my business partner Ben more of a work/life balance too as growing our team will allow us to delegate accordingly.”

Sunny Landa, director at NG Chartered Surveyors, said: “BullyBillows is a fantastic example of entrepreneurial spirit that is evident throughout Nottingham. Anthony and Ben have managed to grow their company rapidly in unprecedented times, and it’s extremely satisfying to play our part in helping them continue to thrive.
“I’ll be watching their continuing success story with interest and wish them well in their new home.”
