Case Studies

Over the years our brokers have arranged finance for a large number of companies, many of whom have gone on to become long term clients of our brokers whenever they have a new asset to finance.

For example, our brokers may have arranged the finance for an item of plant & machinery and then a few months later been asked to quote for finance for new company cars. Then a year later our brokers are contacted asking to quote for a new machinery loan.

Some examples are provided below:

E Ltd, haulage contractors, needed to finance 6 x Tractor Units at £300k (£50k each) and had been unable to source the necessary finance themselves. We placed the business across four different lenders and achieved the terms required by the customer.

K Ltd, an engineering business, required assistance for an MBO. They managed to raise £170k by way of their own funding and an invoice discounting facility. We were able to provide the remaining £180k by a Sale & Leaseback of their existing machinery.

L Ltd, a new start, engineering business, required £45k for a new CNC Lathe and had been declined by their bankers. We were able to arrange the finance on the terms required by the customer.

A Ltd, a window and door manufacturer purchased a machine from Italy at £100k. The bank initially agreed to finance it but pulled out at the last minute. Following an introduction by the bank we were able to arrange the finance and completed the agreement within a week.

F Ltd, an engineering business, had a downturn in trade leaving cash flow under pressure. We were able to secure a Sale & Hire Purchase Back of their machines for £350k to extend the terms of their existing agreements and also provide a boost to cash flow.
