Finance Durham Fund managed by Maven Capital Partners made the investment.

These wraps personalize vehicles and protect the paintwork, shielding them from stone chips and minor abrasions.

Muss Styling now provides vehicle coating services to dealership groups such as Sytner, Cooper and Stratstone, as well as to corporates for vehicle branding, advertising and campaigns, and directly to consumers.
