We were approached by Denis Allen, the Founder of a business, called Bendal Ltd., that had been established to supply quality leather at competitive prices to the UK Shoe and Bag manufacturing industry. Although the business had already been established for nearly 2 years and was already showing signs of significant growth, the main Banks were not interested. Thus Denis came to us to ask if we could help find sources of the funds he needed to grow the business. Initially we were able to set him u with Trade finance, which solved the short-term problem. Subsequently we were able to arrange a Loan through the ThinCats Crowd Funding Platform of which we are a Sponsor.
In Denis’ words –
“Business Finance Services have been associated with my company for over two years now and have been successful in obtaining funding that we needed to grow the business.
Peter and his colleagues have extensive knowledge of, and contacts within, the finance market and have been instrumental in negotiating on our behalf and guiding us in this necessary business function.
BFS have a happy knack of understanding the full picture quickly and accurately, which is sadly lacking in the banking world and thus i would recommend this company for your future financial requirements.”
- Thanks Denis it was a pleasure and we are very happy to still be working with you to grow the business.
