An enlightened approach to financing businesses

An enlightened approach to financing businesses

Established Newport entrepreneur, Paul Gray, wanted to open a Yankee Candle retail unit in the new Friars Walk development.

Funding the fitting out of the shop entailed a whole list of “systems” – lighting, CCTV, alarm and sprinkler systems, together with signage, shutters and display units – not every funder’s cup of tea.

Paul was referred to Armada because of our renowned reputation for supporting start-ups and our holistic can-do approach to finance.

He must have been happy with the funding package that enabled him to open on time. As he said -

“The whole process was handled in a professional yet friendly manner and all the paperwork was concluded in a timely fashion. I would not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and business associates.”

The sweet smell of success

The sweet smell of success

If you want to take your lady shopping for the day and impress her with quality retail experiences, you might think of going to Altrincham in Cheshire, Guildford in Surrey or Broadway in Worcestershire. Not too many people would automatically think of Newport in South Wales.

However, Murad & Aisha Ali have created such style and quality in the Handpost Pharmacy that their retail unit would fit perfectly in any high-end high street in the UK.

With their experience of owning four pharmacies in South Wales, Murad & Aisha know exactly what is needed to be successful. That was why they have chosen to work with Armada Asset Finance for the last few years.

Murad trusts Armada to give him the support to fund shop fittings and equipment to create the image of a successful pharmacy that incorporates a perfumery.

"Armada make the whole process very simple and straightforward. A lovely company to deal with."

Murad Ali, The Handpost Limited

No reason to beef about Armada's service

No reason to beef about Armada's service

In 1997 Chris Taylor planned the opening of his butchery business, Taylor Made, in the Shires Shopping Centre in Trowbridge. Needing significant refrigerated units, coldrooms, Epos and security systems etc he approach Armada Asset Finance for support in acquiring the equipment he needed.

Armada was delighted to help Chris and his new venture and subsequently Armada funded equipment required for the additional wholesale meat business. In April 2013 Chris asked for further assistance when he needed another coldroom and vacuum packing equipment. Always pleased to see old clients returning, Armada swiftly funded his new purchases.

“I was delighted with Armada’s support when I first started my business. I have used other asset funders but only Armada seems to do what’s on the tin.”

A sweet way to fund business expansion

A sweet way to fund business expansion

Is it the greed of politicians and city traders and the lack of moral leadership that is helping one retail group to be so successful?

In 2004 the first Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe opened. Now, eight years later there are over 80 Victorian-style high street sweet shops, packed to the ceiling with old-fashioned sweets we remember from our childhood. Franchising has enabled this remarkable growth to happen but it is our desire to return to old-fashioned virtues that appeal so much.

Understanding franchising and being ready to support new retail businesses goes a long way with franchisees of this brand which require Armada to arrange equipment finance transactions to set them on their way.

The only humbug is on the shelves
