An important aspect of Johnson Reed’s service is the ability to work with sector specialist suppliers – it’s very often through them that we arrange many of our finance deals. One such specialist is Matrix, a fitness equipment vendor with whom we have had an important partnership recently. Matrix is our crucial link to the leisure and fitness industry, and we support them in assisting their customers to spread the cost of investing in new fitness equipment.

We’re sure they won’t mind us ‘borrowing’ their strapline for the headline to this item, but that’s exactly what they supplied for one of the latest ventures in the public sector – new gym kit for the Oasis Academy Oldham. In line with their new £30m development on Hollins Road in the town, they are catering for 21st century education with outstanding ICT facilities as well as other resources for the whole community. This offering consists of a fitness suite, 3G sports pitch, a skatepark and multi-use games area, all marketed under the umbrella title of the Oldham Sports Hub.

Matrix, with whom we have partnered for over six years, supplied new CV and resistance equipment for the fitness suite, including items from their state-of-the-art 5x range such as Treadmills and Ellipticals. Because of their expertise and experience in education, we’ll bet that 11-16 year-old students in Oldham will be clamouring to join the very attractive sounding Oasis Academy to try out the new kit. We hope it’ll help them to make the most of their educational experience over the next few years.
