Luxury Coleshill candlemaker expands into new premises


A fledgling Coleshill candle-making business is expanding out of its home-based operation into a refurbished office block at a freight forwarding firm’s warehouse. Chris Evans and Anna Ledwitch of


Coleshill Candle Co will be renting offices at International Forwarding Ltd (IFL) for 12 months. The couple started making luxury


scented candles a year ago, selling them at craft shows and events. But while on furlough during lockdown, they took the plunge by launching their own website and online sales platform. Chris said: “Sales increased after


we launched www.coleshillcandleco.com and so we were desperately looking to move from our double garage in Water Orton to a bigger workshop. “This is where IFL stepped in,


through a connection with a friend.


They have been so helpful and accommodating, and we are so excited to be part of the IFL business community.” Nigel Parsons, network director,


IFL, said: “In these Covid times, as a well-established Coleshill company, we were happy to help a brand new one get started. This small office block was lying empty and just had a rowing machine in there. “We cleaned it up, ripped out the


carpets, painted it inside and out – and sealed the deal. “IFL is also about to expand our


own warehousing facilities in August – to add much-needed storage capacity during lockdown and ahead of Brexit – but that means we often have extra yard and car park space or office facilities. If we can rent these spaces out, that helps both us and other companies.”
