The waste and recycling industry has undergone rapid evolution over recent years, with the green agenda creating a wealth of new opportunities.
Businesses across the sector are actively embracing the implications of environmental legislation, and exploring a variety of new revenue streams. But capitalising on new business opportunities often requires a significant outlay to invest in the latest equipment and tools, something which few firms have the cash reserves to do easily.
Fastracker Asset Finance is here to help, with a team specialising in funding assets used by the waste and recycling industry. Working with you, they’ll find an affordable way for you to spread the cost of the equipment you need through tailored packages including Sale and HP Back, and refinancing.
We provide funding solutions for all types of waste and recycling assets, ranging from as little as £5,000 up to £5 million+, but we will consider all asset values.
As the print industry continues to evolve, we’re increasingly seeing firms making capital investment plans to ensure they remain at the forefront of development.
Change brings challenges, but also opportunities. For example, while print-based marketing declines, the demand for printed packaging is growing, in line with the rise in online delivery services. And the exciting developments in digital presses are prompting innovation and creativity across the industry.
However, evolution takes considerable investment, which in turn calls for a sound financial strategy. This is where Fastracker can help. We will help you find an affordable way to spread the cost of the equipment your business needs, through a tailored hire purchase, lease or refinance package.
There’s no minimum entry level for our asset finance solutions and we can fund all types of assets up to £5 million+. We can even help you with funding for mergers, acquisitions and refurbishments.

Businesses who are planning for growth can take advantage of our flexible finance solutions tailored to ensure they find an affordable way to spread the cost of the assets or machinery needed, through a range of products such as hire purchase, lease or refinance. Fastracker Asset Finance will provide funding solutions for all types of assets, large or small.
The Environment Agency has confirmed that the amount of packaging waste recycled in 2015 has hit target. The most notable returns were in plastic, where despite tough trading conditions there Q3 2015 saw the largest return ever seen in plastic.
As a primary packaging material, glass continues to thrive. Europe, being the second largest market is expected to play a key role in boosting demand for glass packaging over the next 5 years. Glass has been the material of choice for decades due to its premium quality, its barrier to contamination, provides a longer shelf life for products and it is highly recyclable.
Glass is very versatile and is popular across a number of packaging sectors, and continued development is making the material even more attractive and useful to brands and their packaging partners. However it is much more straightforward to print on plastics, and as a lightweight alternative to glass it is more cost effective. It is also less fragile than glass.
In the past several years, one of the biggest changes in the packaging market is the competition to attract the swell of millennials, which, by 2020, will account for a third of the adult population (about 83 million). The ripple effect has been a rise in local and craft brands, in nearly every beverage category, functional foods and beverages, and smaller formats, as well as an increased focus on health and sustainability. The ‘millenial’ consumer’s expectations are different to those of previous generations. They are interested in transparency and sustainability.
An essential industry, without material handlers most other sectors – including retail, leisure, construction, public services, transport – wouldn’t be able to function.
This inter-dependency meant that materials handling firms were not immune to the economic uncertainty of recent years. Now, with several sectors showing sustainable growth, new opportunities are arising within the industry.
However, with tight margins, increasing regulatory requirements and technological advancement all putting pressure on cash flow, any investment for growth must be based upon a solid financial strategy.
We provide financial solutions for all types of assets, with funding amounts ranging from as little as £500 to as much as £5 million+.
We provide specialist finance for leisure motorboats and yachts, superyachts and a range of commercial vessels.
Working in partnership with our customers, we spend the time getting to know individual requirements in order to create bespoke finance packages.
We have a comprehensive understanding of manufacturing finance and the issues facing manufacturers.
A turbulent economic climate continues to put pressure pressure on UK manufacturing. In these circumstances, it’s prudent to protect working capital and cash flow. But in order to thrive and compete, manufacturing businesses must also look to invest for the future.
We know how important it is for businesses, particularly smaller ones, to get the financial assistance they need – we also know how hard it can be to get funding through “traditional” financing methods such as manufacturing loans. But we were one of the few lenders that continued to support SMEs throughout the recession and we’re committed to carry on doing so. We have a strong track record in helping small and medium sized businesses secure vital manufacturing funding.
We provide funding solutions for all types of manufacturing assets typically between £100,000 – £150,000, but funding can range from as little as £5,000 to as much as £5 million+.
An essential part of the UK economy, the engineering sector employs more than five million people and contributes £1.06 trillion in turnover. Now, as always, engineering plays a central role in ensuring sustainable economic growth.
The outlook for the sector is positive. The European engineering industry has been set the ambitious goal of increasing output to more than 20% of the GDP by 2020. There are many UK firms with the capability and determination to rise to this challenge, but generating this growth will require investment. Worn out or obsolete assets will need to be replaced with those that improve productivity and cost effectiveness.
We’re here to help. We’ll work with you to find an affordable way to spread the cost of the equipment and machinery you need, through a tailored hire purchase, lease or refinance package.
From £5,000 to £5 million+, we provide funding solutions for a comprehensive range of engineering assets.
We finance aircraft registered in the UK, USA, Isle of Man and the Cayman Islands, excluding those operated by major airlines and the Armed Services.
The farming and agriculture sector is a vital part of our economy. One of our oldest industries, it continues to adapt in response to market forces and wide-ranging sector developments.
Today, there’s a wealth of new machinery and technology available to help farms maximise their potential for growth and improve efficiency. There are also real benefits to be had from investing in sustainably produced biomass, especially when used to create renewable energy.
We know how high running costs can be for agricultural businesses and that it can be difficult to raise the capital for the assets needed to support your ambitions. We’ll help you find a way to spread the cost of the machinery, vehicles and technology you need, through a tailored hire purchase, lease or refinance package.
There’s no minimum entry level for our asset finance solutions and we can fund all types of assets up to £5 million+. We’ll help guide you through the process and enable your agricultural business to take full advantage of the benefits of asset finance.
