Access Hire and Finance secures £750,000 funding

Access Hire and Finance, a provider of credit hire services to road traffic accident victims, has secured a £750,000 invoice finance facility from Secure Trust Bank Commercial Finance. 

The company is a sdupplier of hire cars to victims of road traffic accidents. It employs 27 staff and also assists with accident related finance, helping to fund repairs and maintenance for car garages.

The company achieved turnover of £3.6m in the year to November 2014 and is expected to see its revenue jump to £4.2m in its current financial year as a result of the additional funding.

Chris McCormack, director at Access Hire and Finance, said: “We operate in a niche sector that doesn’t fit the criteria for funding set by the big banks. Secure Trust Bank took the time to understand our needs and had a firm grip on our business from the start. Having this new facility in place provides us with the headroom to focus on the day-to-day running of the business and puts us in a much stronger position to achieve our growth objectives.”

Dave Green, regional sales director at Secure Trust Bank Commercial Finance, added: “Access Hire has significantly improved its operational procedures over the last 12 months which has had a positive impact on its efficiency. The company is now in an excellent position to unlock growth opportunities and we look forward to supporting the team at this exciting time.”
