In competitive markets such as retail, wholesale, manufacturing and construction, Woodsford Tradebridge offers strong, established businesses improved liquidity to support business turnaround.
Turnaround & margin improvement
Support your turnaround strategy and improve business liquidity with a flexible working capital facility. If your business success is directly tied to the success of smaller supplier partners, we can help.
Providing a much-needed cash injection to support improvements in production or design to keep pace with more agile competitors.
Be more agile
A cash injection gives established businesses working capital flexibility to support innovation and to compete with more agile competitors.
When margins are low or eroded in response to external factors, supply chain finance can improve negotiating power for margin improvement.
Improve cash flow
An unsecured supply chain finance facility that sits gently alongside existing finance arrangements, to improve your cash position.
Established businesses with a strong asset base sometimes struggle to keep pace with more agile competitors. Improvements in the business's cash position give decision makers the ability to move quickly to take advantage of market opportunities and improve margins.
Improve your margin with a cash injection of up to £10m
Leverage your asset base
We'll work with businesses that have a significant asset base, but with a negative operational cash flow. We can provide a cash injection that will counter-balance long cash conversion cycles or an early payment solution to negotiate supplier discounts.
We love family firms
Family firms with a strong history and significant equity are typically reluctant to dilute that equity with external investment. Supply chain finance offers these businesses a cash injection to support a turnaround strategy or to keep pace with more agile competitors.
We understand your business
Our facility will support turnaround strategies, margin improvement and business growth. Our team of consultants work with businesses across many sectors and will draw on that experience to design the right working capital or SCF solution for you.
Support your turnaround plan with supply chain finance
From manufacturing to retail, construction to professional services, we can help
When your business is dependent on your supply chain, perhaps sourcing products, components or services for a large number of smaller suppliers, the efficiency of your supply chain is vital to business success.
Our working capital experts each have many years business experience, and can share what we've learned from working with other businesses like yours.
Low or eroding margins make banks reluctant to extend finance
Unlike banks, we look beyond your published accounts, and are happy to lend to businesses with a large asset base, significant equity and a strong management team in place, whatever your margin.
If your margins are low, we can provide a working capital facility that will empower you to negotiate early payment discounts and preferential supplier arrangements.
You will always meet with a decision-maker that has worked with other businesses like yours, who will invest their time to understand your plans for growth.
"Before speaking with Woodsford TradeBridge, I felt well-versed in supply chain finance and thought I knew exactly how it worked. But the specific nature of the Woodsford TradeBridge facility was new to me."
- By Glyn Loveday, Financial Director
“I didn’t believe that it was going to be as easy as you said, but 2 months in and our facility is working perfectly, the accounts team are happy and I didn’t have to get involved at all.”
