PrintWeekLive! headline sponsor Close Brothers Asset Finance will have its team of print experts on hand at this week’s event to offer visitors a wide range of financial advice.
The London-headquartered asset finance specialist will take up a 35m² stand when the show returns to the Wasps Arena, Coventry on 7-8 March.
Members of the 20-strong team that heads up the bank’s specialist print division will be in attendance to show visitors how they can help finance their plans for new equipment and other endeavours that require investment or capital release.
“Last year at PrintWeekLive!, we had a very good experience,” said sales director Paul Philbrick. “We saw some very good footfall and met with faces both old and new.
“It has been a good year for us since then, because we have been able to help a wide number of print companies to finance both new and replacement equipment for their businesses. We hope to see plenty of people this year so we can show them the bespoke financial packages we can offer.”
The company offers a broad range of financial services and advice, including tailored hire purchase, refinancing, finance lease and operating leases. Its asset finance packages have no minimum entry level and can fund all types of print assets up to £5m-plus. It also offers tailored packages for mergers, acquisitions and refurbishments.
Last year, Close Brothers made its first move into the digital print market when it launched a new finance initiative that provides soft lending against digital print assets for UK SME printers. This product enables businesses to fund digital assets without the need to provide any deposit or guarantees.
All types of new or ex-demo digital production printing machines are considered for finance; from high-speed, high-capacity printers for commercial printers and in-house departments to continuous-feed printers for high-volume printing.
