Case Studies

Projects and Testimonials

It’s natural that you’d want the assurance that we really can (and do) do all we say. But we also believe in protecting our clients and ensuring our support of and for them remains confidential at all times. And that really is important. They often don’t want their competitors to know the finance they’ve secured, their investment plans, or the details of their projects. And with us, that’s absolutely fine.

We categorically don’t share our clients’ private business unless they wish to put it in the public domain. In fact, many of our projects are covered by an NDA for the ultimate peace of mind, but all are protected by our own commitment to proactive privacy. It’s just one of the ways that we’re different.

Saying that, we do have some clients happy to be on the record and we can provide examples of projects and references upon request.
Here’s two client Case Studies that have granted us consent.


We led Len Wright Salads to a circa £11.5 million new factory, which we led the investment consultancy on for the company including over
£1.5 million public Investment & £4.5 million commercial lending and £5.5 million asset finance for equipment.
Giving the company an additional 3,800 m2 of new factory and £28 million of extra turnover.

The first phase of our £1.6million poultry factory extension project has been completed with the installation of a new chiller.
Work began on the £400,000 project in September 2018 and will increase chill capacity at our Middleton on the Wolds factory by 25%.

Our MD, Nigel Upson said: “In addition to the infrastructure projects completed in 2017/18, the extension project will enable us to increase whole bird processing and expand our portioning capacity in response to customer needs and the completion of the chiller is an important step. It is a state of the art chiller with high efficiency cooler controls and a robust leak detection system that protects the environment.
“It’s a significant investment that marks a new and exciting chapter in our history and goes hand in hand with work that is underway to upgrade our farms to develop further our high animal welfare standards.”

The factory extension project is part funded by the European Agriculture Fund for Rural Development with a £610,000 grant secured by Westley Consulting.

Work will start on phase 2 of the project in January, 2020. Once completed, it will create 15 additional jobs in the sales and marketing, processing and distribution departments.
