Two years ago, I decided to switch all my banking to Santander. We immediately obtained the support we needed for a commercial mortgage, asset finance, finance for refurbishment, and most recently, CBILS funding. 

We will beat this virus, and thanks to Santander's support, I'm free to concentrate on running my business and making sure we do our bit and achieve exactly that.

Managing Director, Pallet Plus

We've been working with Pallet Plus since 2018, providing funding to support the purchase of their trading premises, and a refurbishment and fleet expansion. During this time, their turnover and profit has more than doubled.
 
More recently, we’ve provided a working capital overdraft giving the owner peace of mind to continue trading throughout the pandemic, helping keep his valued staff employed. They’ve been able to deliver vital goods such as PPE, medical consumables and ventilators, to the NHS and care homes, as well as goods to supermarkets nationwide.

"Pallet Plus is fulfilling a critical role to help keep the supply chain moving and getting vital equipment and goods to the NHS and care workers, as well as supermarkets. This facility will help ensure the business can continue to provide these vital services, despite the uncertainties caused by coronavirus."
