Customer feedback

"Recent months have seen rapid growth as we have increased our client base to cover many of the largest names in the UK. From our three bases across the country, we are now in a position to provide services on a national scale...

"To ensure this growth is sustainable, we required a creative and flexible finance offering. Secure Trust Bank seemed the obvious choice for us, and we're confident that with their backing, Winsulate can continue its upward trajectory this year."

"Technologies are advancing rapidly in IT infrastructure and so too is the work we're required to do. We have sought to capitalise on the opportunities that this evolution has presented to us and have achieved sustained growth as we continue to do complex work for blue-chip, global companies. Having a flexible partner that was able to offer support to a changing but complex IT service was paramount to meet the growth needs of our business.

"Secure Trust Bank's approach was refreshing; they took a significant amount of time to get to know us, our business and our market. We are really looking forward to a strong working relationship with Secure Trust and are confident we can reach our potential with their support."

"First impressions are all important, and we were impressed by the way Secure Trust Bank worked closely with both ourselves and the management team to provide a tailored solution. The team applied a flexible approach to structure the deal around the requirements of the business, made all the more impressive by the turnaround time it was achieved in. I look forward to working alongside the team as we look to accelerate Trueform's growth, as well as on deals in the future."

"When we looked to invest in Independent Inspections, the great reputation of each of their component brands, as well as the access to a strong client base, were key factors in our deal. However, we recognised that implementing a finance facility in a short space of time was crucial to driving future growth.

"The team at Secure Trust Bank Commercial Finance took the timeframe in their stride, providing us with a tailored and comprehensive package that facilitates the needs of the business. There is enormous potential for growth at Independent Inspections, and we're confident that with our ongoing support, we can achieve this over the coming months."

"Aerospace is thriving in the North West, and there are many huge opportunities available to companies in this area. To ensure that we expand at the same rate as the sector, we needed to enhance our cash flow to keep up with the main players in the region.

"Secure Trust Bank Commercial Finance was able to create a funding line that facilitated our needs, demonstrating an understanding of our business and the challenges presented by the export markets. We were able to speak with local, senior members of the team who had the experience to get the deal turned around quickly and smoothly."

"Expanding the business into new locations while maintaining our tailored, supportive service is at the forefront of our growth strategy. To achieve our objectives, we needed a finance facility that is both flexible and affords us a greater level of control over our finances.

"Secure Trust Bank offered a straightforward approach, working closely with us throughout the deal process and taking the time to fully understand our business."

"The business is continuing to grow at a rapid pace and we needed a facility in place that would allow us to hold more stock. We weren't able to access funding from our traditional lender and were delighted that Secure Trust Bank could step in to support our ambitious growth plans. Over the next few years we plan to open more showrooms across the country which will help to cement our position as one of the UK's leading suppliers of quality doors.

"Working with the team at Secure Trust Bank was very straightforward and they provided the funding in less than five weeks. Tony has been incredibly attentive and would always appear at the drop of a hat, which was very refreshing. They always came to us with a solution and genuinely wanted to put a facility in place instead of creating any barriers."

"Having done a thorough search of the lending market, we preferred the option of Secure Trust as they were more nimble and took a more flexible approach. The whole process of partnering with Secure Trust was seamless and went very smoothly from the outset. We look forward to growing our business and, thanks to Secure Trust, the envisaged strategy can now become reality."
