“It’s a crucial time for the construction sector with subcontracting businesses facing increasing challenges, such as the rising cost of raw materials, extended payment terms and changes to legislation,” said Steve.
“…I’m thrilled to join the team to further support UK SMEs with the funding they need.”
Adrian Payne, head of sales in Solent at BFS (pictured above), added: “We’re committed to supporting SMEs, regardless of the economic climate.
“The knock-on effects of Carillion’s collapse in 2018 has continued to impact the construction sector, so it’s more important than ever that we provide the right support to subcontracting businesses.”
