“The ‘Champions Series’
We’re back again to feature another great business as part of our Boost Capital ‘Champions Series’. Today we’re featuring Thanet Formwork, a construction company with big plans and even bigger clients. See their story below.
Tell us about your business
“We are an RC frame company. What does that mean? Well we are a reinforced concrete frame company and we build frames/structures for the construction industry. We work mainly throughout the Kent, Sussex, London and the South East regions. We’ve been established since 2014 through our partnership with 2 industry experts with over 70 years’ experience in the construction industry between them.”
“We undertake specialist work in relation to creating framework for slabs, decking, drop beams and walls. We also do shuttering, steelfixing and we create reinforced concrete frames for large scale building and construction operations.”
“We pride ourselves on the quality of our work and are equally proud of our 100% health and safety record which is a rarity for a company in this line of work. We’ve worked with some of the U.K’s biggest new homes builders and some commercial construction giants in the U.K too.”
How has the start of the year been?
“Well it’s always busy for us as we have projects of all kinds. Some which are long term and can take a while to scope out and finish. Some work we do is quite quick in terms of turnaround especially if it’s a smaller construction job. So it’s been busy, but its always that way for us, just the way we like it.
We’ve also partnered up with one of the world’s most famous musicians and his partners to undertake a huge train project which is very exciting. I’d love to name names, but can’t, but trust me they are world renowned. As well as a project for a very prominent London Championship football club.”
Why did you require additional business finance?
“Well as you can imagine with a few very high profile projects on the go with some very important people we wanted to ensure we had all the materials we needed well ahead of time. The funds we acquired with Boost gave us welcome relief and knowledge that we could go ahead and accept the work while having all the materials in place to undertake and complete the work. We also needed to ensure we had extra security staff to on site to ensure everyone was looked after and could work safely.”
Why did you choose Boost Capital?
“Strangely enough we were referred to Boost by another finance provider who was unable to help us at the time. We’re glad they pointed us in your direction as you were much easier to deal with. Your process was so simple and professional. We had the documents to you quickly and you funded us in a few days, which for us was a huge bonus, as we were anticipating a longer turnaround time due to our industry being very different to the norm.”
“We would certainly come back to Boost further down the line as we keep getting projects day-by-day and it’s encouraging to know that you are there to help us when we need it.”
