Racing to success

Rothmans Havant have been fundamental in helping to shape the success of their client Setford Racing Ltd since its launch. 

Setford Racing Ltd

Dan and his team at Setford use their expertise to work on every aspect of building and fabricating historic racing cars. They construct some of the world’s most specialist historic engines and vehicles, many of which take part in FIA sports car racing championships all over the world.

Since the beginning, Dan has relied on the support and advice he gets from Rothmans. As the business continues to grow, Rothmans have assisted with the feasibility review of the ability of the company to take on each employee, reviewing profitability and the amount of chargeable hours that new employees would have to achieve before adding a contribution to the company’s overheads.

Dan says, “I always wanted to set up on my own and Matt, Ian and the team at Rothmans were of huge help in getting the company up and running.

“We have made a profit every year since we started and Rothmans have played an important role in that success. For example, they put the building blocks in place for the day-to-day accounting and bookkeeping processes handled by my partner. The only way we could take on the task of managing this ourselves is through the guidance and advice we received from Matt.

 “Any time we need information, we get clear straight answers from Rothmans. Whenever we have gone to Matt and the team with our ideas for expansion, such as setting up the storage arm, their advice and encouragement have allowed us to grow the business without it getting out of control.

 “I would definitely recommend the firm to others – in fact, when people ask me, I always tell them to go straight to Rothmans!

Rothmans tick all the boxes – they are good value, the service is perfect and I am happy with everything they do for us.”
