Old world charm - old world service

Old world charm - old world service

Having supported Tina Mussell and her various businesses over many years we were delighted to give asset finance assistance to her and her son Dino when they asked us to fund the fixtures and fittings at the Wild Duck at Ewen in the Cotswolds.

This magnificent 16th Century inn has all the old world charm in the bars and restaurant areas and all the latest, stylish comforts in the bedrooms. In what is probably the finest part of the country, occupied by many of the Royal family, the Wild Duck is perfect for dining and an ideal base for touring.

No wonder Armada supported the Mussell family. Our personal attention obviously impacted on Tina and Dino, as Tina said “Armada are a breath of fresh air – what a lifeline.”

Originally Stephen and Andrew Harris of the Folke Golf Centre, Sherborne came to Armada to fund catering equipment for their stylish new “Seasons” restaurant at the club. That was in 2007.

So impressed were they by the service and the relationship that year on year they have returned for further catering equipment, tractors, IT equipment, lockers and a range of other items.

Asset finance has enabled Stephen & Andrew to acquire the equipment the club needed WHEN it was needed and the excellent relationship they have built with Armada has taken the strain out of stretching their cashflow.

Service with Armada is par for the course

Fit for life

Fit for life

In 2011 James Gatward and his daughter Annabel Glynn were planning to open a fitness studio in the charming yachting centre of Lymington, overlooking the Isle of Wight.

They weren't looking to open a conventional gym but a studio concentrating on 30 minute exercise routines for weight loss, fitness and mobility improvement as well as body shaping.

To their amazement, when they turned to their bankers for support they were informed that the bank was not interested in funding gym equipment.

Armada took little time to establish that James and Annabel were worth supporting and the offer to asset finance their gym equipment was immediately accepted. The folk of Lymington are so much fitter thanks to Shape Up Studios.

A healthy relationship

Bath is renowned for its tourism, hospitality and style. Now it can add another name to its list of fine dining eateries.

The Kilted Chef in Kingsmead Square is producing stunning food with a Scottish bias from TV chef Dougie Bonar.

When owner, John Stevens was setting up his new venture in 2012 it was to Armada he came for equipment finance for his catering equipment and fixtures & fittings.

John, a man of exquisite taste, demanded the best service for his funding support and got it.

Romance is alive and flourishing at Hayling Island on the Hampshire coast. Recently I visited the Inn on the Beach with my beautiful lady. A bottle of Lanson and a dozen oysters on the deck watching the crimson sun dropping over the beach - who needs Bondi or California?

In 2009 Ian & Carole asked us to asset finance their catering equipment, furniture and fixtures and fittings. We were delighted to support them and their new venture and have continued to support.

As Ian said "Part of our success is down to the on-going support provided by the Armada team. Dealing with Armada was like a breath of fresh air."

The perfect match

The perfect match

Rob gradually built up his event hire business over many years, concentrating on many major wedding events in the country.

When his daughter left university and joined him the business rapidly grew. Her ability to charm the brides' parents was a tremendous asset.

Armada's first contract with Rob was an asset finance agreement for storage boxes for glassware, china and cutlery. Debbie's input soon brought requests for glasswashers, passthrough dishwashers, propane ranges and grills etc, together with furniture and sound and lighting equipment.

Armada's funding of all their equipment really helped their cashflow when they were waiting to be paid for the 'Happy Day'.

Funding growth and success, "cheers"

Box Steam Brewery is a family owned craft brewery in Holt, Wiltshire, producing a number of ales with names inspired by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

“A pint of Dark & Handsome for the wife and a half of Christmas Blond for you Sir?”

Maybe you would prefer Chuffin Ale or Funnel Blower. Whatever your taste, Box Steam Brewery have made such a success of brewing and marketing that when they needed more fermentation vessels it was to Armada that they came for asset finance support.

Having funded independent breweries since the 1980s we understood their business and their needs.

With a view to the future

Amit Khan and Robert Mathers met at Warwick University and formed a lasting friendship. They went on to train to be optometrists in London before taking up posts with a national chain of opticians.

Now in their 30s and with the support and backing of their families they were able to fulfil their vision of opening their own high street practice.

Their accountants recommended Armada Finance to them and suggested they should use asset finance to purchase their testing equipment, furniture and shopfittings. 

Within a couple of days the equipment finance was made available to them and now they have the most stylish customers in the North West.

Thanks to the vision that Amit and Robert had their customers are well focused. Hurray for modern technology and equipment leasing.

Should have gone to Khan & Mathers

The Scallop Shell

The village of Beckington, near Bath is surrounded by top quality country house hotels and their high-earning patrons. Not surprising then that Gary & Lisa Rosser chose White Row Farm, Beckington as the site of their multi-functional fish business.

With a wet fish department, seafood deli and fish and chip take-away and restaurant they have everything to attract the decerning locals and hotel guests for miles around.

Fitting out the premises to a standard that would suit the trade they wanted to attract was essential. Fortunately for Garry & Lisa Armada understands their business like no other and with Armada’s history of supporting start-up businesses it was very straight forward for Garry & Lisa to obtain asset finance for the equipment they needed. They had a commitment to assist them within 24 hours of asking.

Clean cut laundry solution

Clean cut laundry solution

Having bought their 80 bedroom hotel in 2003 Alison and Craig have spent the last two years refreshing and up-grading the whole property.

With an additional active spa and gym facility they constantly have considerable amounts of linen to go to the laundry.

A recent increase in their new contract with the laundry caused Alison to re-think their strategy. She calculated that by having a 3 year asset finance contract on installing their own washers, dryers and irons together with the wages costs they will not be paying any more than they are to the laundry over the life of the equipment finance and in 3 years time their cashflow will benefit considerably.

Another problem put to bed
