A business that has manufactured hand-crafted jukeboxes at its Leeds factory for more than 40 years has secured funding to bring production of large-scale artwork in house. Still family owned, Sound Leisure remain one of only two traditional jukebox manufacturers in the World. 

Sound Leisure has secured £5,000 of digital technology funding from the government-backed Digital Enterprise programme, which helps businesses in the Leeds City Region to upgrade their digital technology.

The company, which currently outsources the large-format printed elements of its jukeboxes, plans to invest in a £20,000 large-format printer, enabling it to improve its efficiency and diversify its range to expand into new markets.

The £5m turnover business, which employs 80 people at its Leeds production facility and a further five staff in Nottingham, has more recently been commissioned to design and produce a variety of bespoke jukeboxes for high-profile clients. They include a limited edition Sergeant Pepper's vinyl jukebox for Apple Music to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the release of the album, and a model styled on the Norton Commando motorcycle.
