Supplier Finance – Vision Projects

Leicestershire-based Vision Projects are a commercial interior design company working across the UK with a variety of clients, including HSBC, Leicester Tigers and Derby College.

The business offers a complete solution to companies that are looking to refit their current premises or are moving to a new location. Vision can help with everything from sourcing new locations, space planning and specifying items for the refit. 

On the challenges the business faces, Managing Director, Gareth Seymour, commented: “One of the biggest things we find when presenting a project to a client is that, nine times out of ten, we are at the back end of the project and the budget has often started to run out.”

Gareth continues: “Having the opportunity to offer a lease option on a commercial fit out which covers the partitioning, carpets, air conditioning and furniture- all of the items you would think you couldn’t lease- is fantastic. It means that our clients can keep the same specification, rather than having to cut down and restrict elements of the project. As a contractor, it also means we can get a deposit up front, which secures our labour and materials.” 

Business Development Manager at Portman, Jack Doran, added: “With our expertise, attractive borrowing rates and access to over 40 lenders, it has never been a better time for businesses to invest in their growth whilst minimising the impact on working capital. Asset finance is a great solution for any business at the beginning of a project, or as Gareth mentioned towards the end when budgets can become strained. Our supplier network is paramount to our business and we look forward to working with Vision Project’s again in the future.”
