Funding and support for construction industry
Our forests and woodlands are fundamental places for the environment, people and economy. We have decades of experience working with forestry contractors and timber hauliers, and have witnessed the industry transform and grow throughout this time. Contributions to growth include moving towards more sustainable forestry management, grants to create new forest land, and an increasing demand from sawmills and construction.
New ways of working and increasing competition could mean that your business needs to invest in new equipment in order to keep up-to-date. We can finance both new and used assets, even if you are buying from another operator or are buying from abroad. By taking the time to really get to know your business and your ambitions, we can support you with seasonal payments, low deposits, and VAT deferrals, subject to credit. We can also assist in raising cash to inject into your business by refinancing your existing unencumbered assets.
We understand the challenges faced in forestry due to the cyclical nature of the industry, and we have developed great relationships with many of the leading finance companies that have a real appetite to lend to businesses in this sector.
