£475k funding drives haulier's growth

Oldbury-based haulage company Clarke Transport is boosting its fleet size after working with us to secure £475,000 in funding. Family-run Oldbury specialises in transporting semi-hazardous materials such as chemicals and paint. It will use the finance to purchase five Mercedes trucks to add to its fleet of more than 200. The package follows a £1.25m contract win with Sika Ltd, which will also lead to job creation at the business. Clarke Transport has depots in Manchester, Wakefield, Glasgow, Luton, Bridgend and Southampton. It employs 400 staff. Alan Swarbreck, financial controller at Clarke Transport, said: 'This funding package from Santander will not only allow us to service the needs of the new contract but also help to ensure that our fleet is one of the most up-to-date on the road.'
