As a seasoned entrepreneur, starting a business was nothing new for Andy Dickens. Some would wonder why such an accomplished businessman would take on another ‘project’ during a worldwide pandemic, however, clearly Andy’s ambitions run thick through his blood.
At Full Metal Finance, we were first introduced to Andy through one of our many regional Avant dealers, 1st Base Plant Hire, supporting Andy with an initial wave of machinery, utilising the Government CBILS programme to secure competitive funding.
Following on from this and continuing to stay close to Andy, we were presented with several more opportunities, culminating in the flagship investment in a total of 15x Bobcat machines, 5x Messersi units, 6x Mecalac machines, several Avant machines, a Faresin telehandler and a whole range of attachments, trailers etc.
It is fair to say that there aren’t too many entrants into the plant hire market who are investing so heavily, at such a time – but fortune sure does favour the bold.
Andy’s business acumen and background adds a degree of comfort. Heavily involved in the commercial property space and being the owner of the Spectrum Motor Group of companies, Andy understands the sales and hire market very well.
Using our creative thinking, persuasive skills, and careful eye for detail, we were confident that we could assist EMY Plant Hire Ltd. Even though we were often in competitive situations, we were able to secure Andy’s business through our tenacious deal- structures.
Low deposits, VAT deferrals, we can consider them all.
If you are a new or growing plant hire company alike, give us a call to understand how we can help you and ‘grow’ with your business.
