Play Equipment Finance

Case Studies

Working together for the long-term

Working together for the long-term

When long-term clients and friends Peter and Victoria Buttle returned to Armada for further funding for their Apple Tree children’s nursery group, we were delighted to help.

With further sites and expansion planned, they knew from past experience not to use their cash reserves to pay for renovations. They knew that asset finance with Armada makes more sense.

The flag ship nursery in Magor needed its outside space revamping. Armada funded equipment many other lenders wouldn’t consider, including outdoor matting and bespoke play equipment.

“The children can’t wait to use the new garden. Thanks again to Armada, for the fourth time you have exceeded our expectations. Looking forward to working on the next project together when we open our new nurseries later this year.”

Peter & Victoria Buttle, Appletree Nursery Group Ltd www.appletreenurseries.co.uk

Use your cash wisely to help develop your business.

Good parental guidance

Good parental guidance

The father of sisters, Sarah and Katie, was happy to support them in setting up a new business but on the proviso that they got experience by working for an existing children’s nursery.

After two years of being employed by an existing Armada client, they began putting plans together and looking for suitable premises.

With their family behind them and an introduction to Armada they requested asset finance help to acquire outdoor play equipment and the rubber tiling for the base, together with the latest door entry system and CCTV and the furniture for the premises.

Although the sisters had never run a business and had limited experience, with the parents’ guarantees and the fact that Sarah and Katie owned an unencumbered flat, Armada was happy to support this new venture in Cheshire.

The equipment they required is being funded over 3 years. Father was delighted that the projections indicated that they could afford a 3year repayment profile and that they weren’t tied into long term debt.

Happy parents, happy sisters, happy nursery.

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.”

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.”

Steph & Sarah run a shop and internet business in Harrogate, supplying circus and juggling equipment to Alton Towers, Butlins, Sadlers Wells and others. The business has been established since 1985.

When they decided to add a children’s soft play facility to their premises they approached Armada – the most experienced lenders to the soft play industry.

“From Armada it’s been a smooth service from beginning to end and I can’t be happier with the result.”

In the Autumn of 2009 Steve & Camilla Johnson bought Play Shack children's play centre in Hedge End Southampton and have since added a further site in Southampton, opposite Ocean Village.

Recently Steve & Camilla requested further support from Armada for asset finance for catering equipment for their new site. They are aware that Armada welcomes requests to fund play equipment, Epos and security equipment and so much more.

"Armada are positive and helpful. It reminds us of the old days."

Quick on our feet

Quick on our feet

Armada have been working with accountants for 40 years but it is always rewarding when they introduce new clients.

In the case of Aaron & Klara Wagg of Mountain View Ranch, Caerphilly, we had supported them in their children’s play centre in Cardiff in 2004.

Nevertheless, when Nick Toye of BPU Accountants in Cardiff rekindled our relationship with Aaron & Klara we were delighted to consider assisting with asset finance for their new adventure centre at Castell Heights.

With Segway trekking, high ropes, pony riding and adventure play, plus superb catering facilities, Mountain View has something for all children as well as fun loving and brave parents and grannies.

Armada was more than happy to be adventurous and finance all the outdoor climbing and play equipment. To be in tune with the new business we felt that we should be positive and quick with our service...

“Amazing response. Done and dusted within 48 hours – what more can we say!”

Taking children seriously

Taking children seriously

When Armada first supported Kids Play, the company ran childrens' activities centres. That was in 2003. Now they operate from 19 centres offering breakfast clubs and after school and holiday clubs, all registered by Ofsted.

Armada is always pleased to be involved with professional, well-run businesses, especially when they are putting so much thought and effort into our country's children.

Over 50 asset finance agreements have enabled Kids Play to purchase the perfect equipment for the fun and safety of our little people.

When Robert & Olly left the forces they decided to put their training, abilities and passion into starting their own business, Boulders indoor climbing centre in Cardiff.

All ages are catered for, from under 7s to school and scout groups, corporate development sessions and even granny and granddads wanting a coffee and a light snack - everyone is given the same care and attention.

Robert and Olly needed to purchase more equipment for their youngest climbers and asked Armada to finance these assets over 3 years.

Whether it's climbing frames or catering equipment for the cafe, it's the people who matter and it's the people Armada want to help.

Caring and fun are their middle names

Caring and fun are their middle names

In April 2001 we were looking for asset finance to help us fund Tumble Jungle, a children’s play centre in Kings Norton, Birmingham. We used Armada Asset Finance to acquire all our equipment, and the advice and support we received from Kirk Smith, MD of Armada, was invaluable.

After our water pipes burst over Christmas and flooded the site we called in Armada manager Olly Nash. He was so efficient and calming that we couldn’t wait to meet him. He didn’t disappoint.

We will always be grateful we found Armada, an amazing company who take time to get to know you and your business. We wouldn’t be here today without them.
