Cleaning product manufacturer uses ABL to refinance funding facility

Spray bottles

Industry: Manufacturing

Product: Asset based lending

Facility size: £11.7m

Following a management buy-out, this cleaning manufacturer made the decision to leave their existing financier and find a funding partner who was more supportive. 

Initially, the business worked with their accountant to consider lenders in the market who could support them. They chose to partner with Close Brothers Invoice Finance to benefit from excellent customer service alongside competitive rates.

To help the business meet its goals, we approved a £11.7m asset based lending facility. This included an IDeal invoice discounting line, plus additional funding secured against inventory and plant and machinery.

By combining several elements, the business was able to reach a higher level of funding than invoice finance alone. This allowed them to refinance their old borrowing account and switch to a Close Brothers solution which offered access to additional working capital.
