Truro-based Ignition, a leading UK provider of vehicle and asset finance for SMEs, has been supporting the growth of fellow Cornish business, REDS Group, since its inception in 2017, and has recently helped to boost its fleet with the funding of two brand new Fiat Talento vans.
REDS Group, based in Helston, provides environmental services and HazMat and oil storage solutions to industries across the UK, with expertise ranging from incident spill response and environmental risk assessments, to storage tank decommissioning and land remediation.
The company has experienced significant growth over its first four years, with its current team of 32 employees set to expand further in the coming months. Recent investment in an equipment depot in Dudley has also boosted growth by facilitating access to customers in the north of the country.
Despite the Covid-19 crisis, the company has continued to grow, recruit, and diversify, and has helped with the nation’s response to the pandemic by providing its decontamination and disinfection services to a range of commercial premises including gymnasiums, building sites and shipping vessels.
Lloyd Burnard, REDS Founder / Managing Director, comments:
“From day one, the team at Ignition helped REDS hit the ground running with the funding of vans and equipment, and they have continued to support us ever since. We now have a fleet of 24 vehicles and counting and know that we can depend upon Ignition to give us excellent service and competitive rates as we continue to grow.”
Ross Hyde, Account Manager at Ignition, comments:
“It’s been a privilege to work alongside the team at REDS and help them thrive. The company is clearly destined for further success and we look forward to supporting them on their journey.”
