Lanarkshire based CRL Recycling Limited is a recycling company specialised in cable, scrap metal, plastics and pallets.
Initial funding was required to assist with the purchase of a cable granulator, which is a fundamental piece of equipment used to separate the cables into the different components; namely copper, PVC, steel and aluminium which can then be sold on to scrap metal merchants.
As a business start-up, the company found it difficult to secure funding from mainstream sources and a funding package was put together including investments from the CRL Recycling Limited director, DSL business finance and a public sector funding body.
I found DSL to be more efficient than the other funder I used for finance required to get my business off the ground. I would recommend other businesses approach DSL for finance, as I felt that they are more concerned about your business working, than how much money they would make.
