Case Study

Dunton Environmental

£1.7m business loan for Dunton Environmental.

We were delighted to help Dunton Environmental to successfully access a £1.7m unsecured term loan.

Based in Birmingham, Dunton Environmental solve complex ground contamination problems in the construction and other industries.

In October 2019, after two years of rapid growth, Dunton’s working capital came under pressure from weather-related delays and customer billing issues. Dunton was also over-concentrated in onsite remediation for the construction sector and needed to diversify into off-site solutions attracting business from other industries.

We arranged a £1.7m 8-year fully unsecured cash flow loan – through Caple – to cover Dunton’s additional working capital requirements, whilst billing with key clients normalised. The funds also allowed the company to continue its diversification plan and other key projects such as refurbishment of the new Head Office. You can view the news release here.

When we approached Shaw and Co to assist us in finding a funding solution for our growth plans, they were very quick to source suitable avenues, tailor-made for our specific needs. I found that working with Alexei and his team through the due diligence process was far less stressful and time consuming than other funding deals we had explored previously. They were very swift in gaining an understanding of our business which helped build the picture for the main funder to easily approve. They were an excellent bridge between us and the funder which helped in building relationships on both sides, which added value through the application process and has continued during the loan term. We have maintained a great relationship following the loan agreement and they continue to assist us on matters relating to the loan reporting to ensure that the agreement flows smoothly. I would not hesitate to recommend them for financial advice and would most certainly use them again.
