BFS provides £3.5m trade finance facility to refrigeration specialist
Independent SME funder, Bibby Financial Services (BFS), has provided a £3.5m funding facility to Capital Cooling Refrigeration Limited, a refrigeration specialist with 20 years’ experience in the industry.
The West Lothian business based in Broxburn, designs, manufactures, distributes and maintains a range of commercial refrigeration products and bespoke systems to a variety of well-known UK retailers across the leisure, retail and hospitality sectors.
Capital’s growing product range and focus on sustainability and commitment to customer service has seen the company position itself as one of the UK’s premier, forward thinking commercial refrigeration businesses.
BFS’ Corporate team was introduced to the business by its owners since 2017, Rcapital. Corporate manager, David McIntyre, and his team moved quickly to deliver a complex multi-product solution to provide the working capital required to support the company’s internal investment and growth.
The £3.5m funding package provided by BFS incorporates trade finance, which will enable the business to extend its footprint in existing markets as well as developing products for new sectors.
Steve Steadman, CEO, Capital Cooling Refrigeration Ltd, commented:
“This new facility will play an integral part in our plans for expansion as it will free up working capital to invest in our people, products and processes. We have been impressed by how quickly BFS were able to structure a funding package that suited our needs. We’re thrilled to partner with the team and look forward to driving the business forwards.”
David McIntyre, corporate manager, Bibby Financial Services, said:
