Trusting Armada's reputation

Trusting Armada's reputation

Bryndulais Scaffolding in Neath focus their business to handle council projects and major construction contracts rather than the fast turnaround scaffolding of house building.

Since 1990 they have scaffolded castle, churches, bridges and towers – sites where their equipment is in place for many months.

In order to control their cash flow, when a new contract is signed and they need additional tubes, boards and fittings they turn to Armada Asset Finance to fund the purchases.

Managing Director, Bryn Jones knows that Armada are the most experienced funders to his industry and he appreciates their knowledge and the personal service he gets.

“Armada have been a real pleasure to deal with. They make the whole process very straightforward and painless!”

Positively supporting the catering industry

Positively supporting the catering industry
Spiro Borg has been running his catering business for 32 years. Whether he is called upon to cater for a wedding, a corporate function, a sporting event or being asked to impress you and your friends in your own home, the result is always the same – immaculate attention to detail and superb food and service.

Spiro knows the importance of quality in sustaining his business for so many years. That’s why, when he needs to acquire furniture and carpets, catering equipment and refrigeration or Epos systems, he relies on his long relationship with Armada Asset Finance to support him. Spiro can concentrate on running his business when his funding is being looked after.

As Spiro says “All it takes is a phone call and the service is as good as always. I can’t fault you.”


Long-term support for the nursery and play industry

Long-term support for the nursery and play industry

Abeer and Mark first approached Armada in 2008, when they were setting up Coconuts Play Centre in Barry.

They needed play equipment, catering equipment and furniture, lighting, flooring, CCTV and Epos systems, air conditioning etc – all items suitable for asset funding. Armada was more than happy to support this business-like and focussed couple.

Since then we have financed assets for their 2 children’s nurseries in Cardiff and Barry. Abeer’s kind comments explain why they keep coming back to us –

“Armada have always been so friendly and reliable and we would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for their support.”

A convenient lender

A convenient lender

When Bethen Barnfield saw a redundant loo block and shelter at Ridgeway Common near Newport she planned to convert them to a local café, incorporating a loo. Some of her friends thought she was a little potty. Now that the café is up and running they know she hasn’t gone round the bend.

Bethan didn’t know whether an asset lender would help her with funding all the equipment she needed. Now she knows that financing new businesses is bog standard for Armada.

As Bethan said –

“Setting up a new business is hard but dealing with Armada was one of the easiest and most straightforward parts.”

Fit for a Queen

The Henman family have been running Henman Marquees since 1991. Whether it’s a small garden party, a corporate event or a county show they have the appropriate marquee to create the best impression.

Flooring, furniture, catering equipment and generators are just some of the equipment needed for a professional marquee company. Significant investment is required to maintain the quality and service for their customers.

James Henwood was delighted to be introduced to Armada

 “We have been in business for many years and Armada were the simplest, most straightforward and friendliest of finance companies I have dealt with. I will certainly be using them again.”

Caring for our future

Caring for our future

Established children’s nursery operators in South Wales were planning to extend the number of sites they run by opening a new facility in the iconic Norwegian Church, overlooking Swansea Bay.

Intelligently they decided not to tie-up all their own capital in the fit-out costs but to finance the assets needed for the new venture.

Looking for the best funders for the project, Peter & Victoria asked local entrepreneurs and nursery and play centre owners. One name kept cropping up as the expert funders to the nursery industry – Armada.

“Our Swansea nursery is due to open in Spring 2015, thanks to Armada providing us with quick finance decisions.”

She relies on Armada to support her when she needs new equipment. Recently she needed to replace major refrigerated display serve-over counters.

Having funded and supported the ice cream industry for over 40 years it only took a couple of hours to agree to fund the cabinets for her new Hot Cross Bun ice cream.

 

“You were as easy to deal with this time as you were the last time. You really are a very helpful company and lovely people to deal with.”

Turning adversity to advantage

Turning adversity to advantage

OnBoard Pro, a software development company in Newcastle, have specialised in packages for the Lettings market.

Their success has led them to move premises and intelligently they decided to use asset finance to fund the office fit out, furniture, carpets, IT equipment etc.

So bad was their experience with the first lender they approached that they were somewhat jaundiced when they approached Armada. We met their requirements for funding in our usual time frame, which seemed to please them. 

“If you are running a fast growing SME and need asset finance, I’d strongly encourage you to start and end your search with Armada, their professional and efficient service is highly recommended.”

Stephen Purvis  CEO, OnBoard Pro Ltd
