Close Brothers Commercial Finance has announced its sponsorship of the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at the 2014 Irish Print Awards.
A panel of esteemed industry judges will choose the winner of this prestigious accolade at a ceremony on Friday 28th November at the RDS Arena, Dublin.
Adrian Madden, Head of Sales (Asset Finance) at Close Brothers Commercial Finance said: “The Irish Print Awards celebrate the very best of the industry and we’re proud to be supporting the Lifetime Achievement category, recognising the person who is deemed by the judges to have made an invaluable contribution over their career.
“There are a number of print businesses that have really stood the test of time so it’ll no doubt be tough to choose the winner – we are looking forward to finding out who walks away with the award on the night.”
Close Brothers Commercial Finance specialises in providing unique funding solutions to businesses throughout Ireland, and is a leading independent provider of invoice and asset finance and asset based lending to both SMEs and corporates.
Adrian added: “While we’ve been offering support to print businesses in Ireland since 2010, Close Brothers itself has been working with the industry for more than 25 years, and feels a close affinity with it.
“We understand how hard it has been for these businesses to survive in a competitive landscape, and that significant restructure and adaptation has been required to do so.
“As an organisation we remain committed to helping printers meet their potential and funding their needs, especially as technology continues to evolve.
“Asset finance is an increasingly popular solution as it offers a more flexible approach than traditional bank lending. It gives a business the means to purchase the assets it needs to move forward, and can even offer refinance of existing assets to release cash,” he added.
