Ian Flaxman, Managing Director, working capital solutions at Wyelands Bank outlines some of the challenges that mid-sized manufacturers face in raising finance.

Wyelands Bank was set up to help UK manufacturers to trade, grow and create jobs. It provides firms, typically turning over £10m or more, with finance based on the value of their assets, wherever they are in the supply chain.
