Client stories

At Santander we recognise that whilst every business owner we work with is unique, our approach is always the same: to develop individually tailored solutions and build long-term relationships.

A poor relationship with its previous bank was stifling potential for outdoor clothing company Equip Outdoor Technologies. Santander’s fresh approach to seasonal cashflow issues led to a new purchase and annual growth of 30%

Parsons Bakery

A 100-year-old business had an ambitious new managing director and a bold expansion plan – everything it needed, except a bank to back its progress.

Maintaining cashflow is a critical factor for wholesaler and distributor Coultons Bread Ltd. Having taken the time to get to know the business, Santander Corporate & Commercial could provide tailored support.
