Blackstar Security has been operating since September 2013 and has successfully built a reputation for providing an authoritative and discreet security presence at high profile events, festivals, and venues throughout the country. The invoice finance facility provided by Aldermore will allow Blackstar Security to grow further, with a view to opening new offices in Birmingham and London.
Founder and Director Henry Badoo was advised by a contact who worked in the finance industry that Aldermore was a great option for new companies wanting to use finance to build their profile.
Henry Badoo, Founder and Director of Blackstar Security, explained:
“Although I was initially considering a number of more established providers, Aldermore stood head and shoulders above the rest in terms of reputation and dependability. One of the most important things I was looking for was trust, and Aldermore was able to reassure me that the service they provide is second to none and that they know exactly what they’re doing.
“At this stage in the growth of any business, taking on new clients can be a financial risk but the funding from Aldermore will give us a bit of breathing space, which will mean that we can continue with confidence in accepting new business and expanding Blackstar Security across the UK”.
Andy Johnson, Regional Sales Manager, Invoice Finance at Aldermore, said:
“Aldermore recognised that Blackstar Security has a really dynamic potential for growth so it seemed a great opportunity for us to provide finance facilities to help them develop and expand.
“Aldermore was founded to support businesses like Blackstar, who want to grow and boost UK employment. We’re really pleased that SMEs are increasingly recognising us as a natural choice in terms of trust and expertise.”
