Investec Materials Handling passes £250m in lending

Investec Materials Handling has recently broken through the £250m barrier of paid out business, having become one of the major suppliers of finance in this sector working with more introducers than ever before.


Investec Materials Handling launched in January 2014, and comprises a team of seven experienced and dedicated people. It provides specialist funding for counterbalance, warehouse and cleaning equipment amongst other associated assets with a focus on personal relationships and detailed sector knowledge.


Since launch, the team has handled deals of all sizes, from £5,000 agreements for individual trucks to multi-million pound payouts across multiple sites.


Investec's Andrew Woodward commented:


"We're one of the only teams that specialises in materials handling – it's our core focus, and with a combined 120 years of experience in the industry, we know it very well indeed." 


"We've been able to grow thanks to a relentless focus on helping introducers, providing high levels of service in addition to providing useful, smooth-running technology to allow them to get deals paid out as quickly and efficiently as possible." (July 2018)


Investec will continue to focus on providing the industry-leading service levels, as well as developing and incorporating new technology to facilitate easy applications and fast payouts.
