Independent Growth Finance delivers £1.95m facility to Pearl Automotive PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 06 March 2017
IGF, the leading commercial finance provider for SMEs, has recently delivered a £1.95 million combined invoice finance and asset based lending line for Pearl Automotive, a supplier to the automotive aftermarket.

The funding delivered by IGF will help to consolidate and grow Pearl Automotive’s existing business, and allow the firm to invest in new machinery to make the processes more efficient within its Essex headquarters.

Pearl Automotive has over 40 years’ expertise in supplying the automotive aftermarket with more than 7,500 lines, including fitted and workshop consumables, servicing, wotnots and display stands. The firm supplies customers throughout the global automotive market.

Robin Etherington, Finance Director at Pearl Automotive comments: “During any refinancing operation there are often obstacles, but the flexibility of the whole IGF team made the process easy. IGF had a complete understanding of our business’ requirements and the facility will provide us with the ability to better service our growing customer base.”

Jeff Greenfield, ABL Director – London & South East at Independent Growth Finance, adds: “The automotive sector has had some difficulties over the last few years, with insolvencies affecting a number of firms. We are proud that our combined facility has meant that Pearl Automotive is able to continue growing and diversifying its business during an uncertain time.”
