County Durham upholstery firm with ambition to be world leader

County Durham upholstery firm with ambition to be world leader

THE owner of a bespoke upholstery business who is looking for global success has picked up the Echo’s Trader of the Week title.

Jonathan Eager, 35, from Darlington, set up the Meridian Upholstery in 2007. He had been an upholsterer for a number of years and a takeover of the company he worked for gave him an opportunity to launch his own business, and after being offered work, and premises, he took the plunge and has never looked back.

He said: “I hadn’t really thought about having my own company, then some things didn’t fall into place, but other things did, so I thought ‘what have I got to lose’ and, despite everything that has happened recently, we are doing well and I am glad I took that decision.
