Witney BIC Newsletter – Winter 2018
Welcome to the Winter issue of the Witney BIC Newsletter.
Admiral Leasing & Loans is an independent finance house, providing equipment finance and commercial loans to businesses all over the UK. Last year, after operating for over 25 years from their Manchester office, they decided to open a southern sales office and chose the Witney BIC as the perfect location. Admiral has a solid reputation in the UK business finance market, based upon excellent customer service levels and wide industry knowledge. Whatever equipment a business needs, they can finance it. With the Head Office remaining in Manchester, the Southern office allows them to be within easy reach of their southern based clients as well as being their sales training base. Managing Director Michael Hughes commented, “Every year we finance a wide range of business-critical equipment to thousands of UK businesses, from tangible assets such as machinery and equipment through to software programmes, as well as offering commercial loans. It makes total sense for us to have a Southern base.” www.admiral-leasing.co.uk
