Nottingham-based firm will use the funding to progress growth plans
A Sandiacre (Nottingham) firm specialising in plastic and metal injection moulding has secured a £250,000 from the MEIF Maven Debt Finance.
H.P.M Limited (HPM) will use the funding package to supplement its working capital, strengthen its presence in the region and hire three additional staff. The deal follows the recent acquisition of HPM by Bage Technologies Limited in June.
HPM produces customised components, sub-assemblies, complete product assemblies and testing for various industries including the aerospace, automotive, medical, electronics and engineering sectors. The firm specialises in metal injection moulding and uses a unique process called metal sintering, which gives the business a technical and commercial advantage over its competitors.
Andrew Eyre,Managing Director at HPM said: “We are extremely excited to receive the funding from MEIF and Maven, which will allow us to fulfil our growth strategy whilst contributing to regional development. We look forward to working with Maven and drawing upon its expertise over the upcoming years.”
David Tindsley, Investment Manager at Maven said: “HPM is a well-established and strongly performing business and we are delighted to provide the firm with the funding it requires to grow. We look forward to working with the team and helping HPM capitalise on new market opportunities.”
The loan is being provided following the recent acquisition of HPM by Bage Technologies Limited. The new owners were advised on the deal by Amar Zarif of Zarif Solicitors based in Sheffield, with the outgoing directors being advised by Rotheras Solicitors in Nottingham. Alicia Corby at Gateley Legal and Jay Mehta of DWF advised Maven in relation to the loan.
