Clear vision for growth

Fentrade has invested in machinery to expand its burgeoning aluminium window and door fabrication business, thanks in part to Henry Howard Finance (HHF).

Matt Jones, head of asset finance at Henry Howard Finance, said: “With Brexit uncertainty having an impact across the board, the manufacturing industry is reportedly feeling the pinch more than most, so we so we are thrilled that we have helped Fentrade to invest in the right machinery and secure a leading edge in its marketplace.

“We always try work with businesses to meet their funding requirements. We look at a company’s future earning potential, and not just past performance, especially with start-ups such as Fentrade.”

Established in August 2018, Fentrade manufactures aluminium windows, bifold doors and commercial entrance systems.

As a new company, it knew that being able to provide high volume, top quality products would be key to its growth.

Managing director Chris Reeks said: “As a start-up business, we were concerned that we wouldn’t be able to get funding but the team at Henry Howard Finance were great in explaining the different finance options available to us. The advice was always honest and practical and they really supported us through the decision-making process.”
