Gateshead based paint specialists, AMD Specialist Coatings, has received a £250k working capital facility to boost growth.

AMD Specialist Coatings provides a range of painting services for clients including Tesco and The Co-operative Food. Run by Steve Davis, the company is just one year old and growing fast. AMD offers powder coating, shot blasting, wet paint coating and on-site work. Aldermore’s support will help Steve take on new business and meet growing client demand.

Steve Davis, Managing Director of AMD Specialist Coatings, commented:

“Since forming in February 2014, we have seen strong demand from a range of local businesses so we’ve strengthened our team and invested in new technology to make sure we can provide top quality service to all of our clients, all of the time. 

“Aldermore quickly understood what I wanted to achieve and got a flexible facility set up in the tight timeframe I needed. I’m now using that facility to provide my team with more training to build on their expertise.”

Chris Huntington, Regional Sales Manager – North East, Invoice Finance at Aldermore, said:

“Steve has been in the coating trade since leaving school; if there’s anything he doesn’t know about the sector, it’s probably not worth knowing. Our team has formed a good relationship with him so were able to provide a tailor-made solution that’s really working for his business.

“Through supporting small businesses like AMD Specialist Coatings, Aldermore is able to make a real contribution to the local economies of the North East. It’s great to be part of a bank that is helping to create jobs and support skilled workers.”
