CLS were first introduced to WDM in back in 2014 when we helped arrange finance for some large industrial mailing equipment, since then CLS have helped WDM on two further occasions helping them to expand by putting finance in place that enabled them to purchase another local company, we arranged the funds within a week, which was 7 weeks quicker than the bank had predicted, speed was of the essence with this deal as there was a very tight dead line to meet.
The second instance WDM needed funds extremely quickly to purchase 5 large machines which would help them expand and keep more of their printing work in house, WDM needed CLS to work to a very tight dead line to ensure that WDM could secure the machines. We again pulled out all the stops and arranged the deal in a 3-day window from the initial enquiry to paying the supplier.
Lynn Beasley – “Complete Leasing were superb! It was fundamental that we had access to finance immediately, and they did not disappoint. From start to finish the whole process took less than 3 days and ran smoothly.”
David Beasley – “Complete Leasing have supported us twice in the last 10 months with 2 major projects that have been key in helping WDM expand quickly and efficiently.
The first project was to purchase the production arm of a local print and mail company, taking on a customer list, equipment and TUPE of staff.
This was an extremely complex deal, not straight forward to finance. Complete leasing pulled out all the stops and turned around the finance with a day to spare.
WDM expanded quickly after this deal, refurbished our building and planned to knuckle down for a few years.
10 months later WDM had another project, we were offered 5 machines that were too good to turn down. We could see how this equipment would allow us to keep more print and print finishing work in house and give us greater control when mailing these items out. A quick call to Ian at Complete Leasing and he had finance arranged. We had a super tight deadline and Ian had this secured and paid out in 3 days.
The supplier was delighted and we had our equipment operational within 1 week of deciding to purchase it. We can now offer Litho and digital print, folding and cross folding, Laminating, booklet making and more, this can be print only or enclosed in envelopes or polythene in our state of the art mailing division.”
