Close Brothers Asset Finance will be exhibiting for the first time at next month’s Freight in the City Expo.

On stand 33, Close Brothers will be on hand to talk you through their range of funding options that can help spread the cost of new vehicles or help businesses release working capital via their current fleet.

Funding routes include hire purchase, refinancing, finance and operating lease.

Close Brothers is currently working with the RHA to launch a programme to help SMEs secure the skills they need for future growth by recruiting young drivers into the transport sector.

The RHA/Close Brothers SME Apprentice Scheme – 20/20, will see Close Brothers contribute to the cost of apprentices for 20 SME members of the association (those with less than 20 vehicles) who might otherwise be unable to afford to take on a new apprentice HGV driver under the age of 24.

Visit stand 33 at the expo to find out more.
