“With Brexit uncertainty having an impact across the board, the manufacturing industry is reportedly feeling the pinch more than most, so we are thrilled that we have helped Fentrade to invest in the right machinery and secure a leading edge in its marketplace,” said Matt Jones, head of Asset Finance at HHF. “We always work with businesses to meet their funding requirements. We look at a company’s future earning potential, and not just past performance, especially with start-ups such as Fentrade.”
Fentrade Managing Director Chris Reeks said, “As a start-up business, we were concerned that we wouldn’t be able to get funding, but the team at HHF were great in explaining the different finance options available to us.

Established in August 2018, Fentrade manufactures bi-fold doors and commercial entrance systems for businesses in addition to aluminum window.
