Growing County Durham containers firm locks down new partnership
A containers specialist in County Durham has entered a new partnership to boost its ongoing growth.
Sedgefield-based firm Parsons Containers has obtained a license from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to make finance referrals to Kennet Equipment Leasing Limited.
Founded in 2000, Parsons Containers has grown into national container sales operation with multiple sites across the North East and Lincolnshire.
The news follows the company’s opening of a new 2.2 acre site for its U Hold The Key self-storage business earlier this year, with more sites planned.
Helen Parsons, finance director at Parsons Containers, commented: “Our significant growth in recent years is linked to Parsons’ reputation for high standards of customer service and the growing appeal of shipping containers.
“We’re delighted to have secured a licence from the Financial Conduct Authority that allows us to broker credit agreements, and we are equally pleased to have found an excellent partner to work with in Kennet Equipment Leasing.
“These are exciting times for Parsons Containers and this latest development will support our longer term business strategy.”
Mark Suckley, sales director at Kennet Equipment Leasing, added: “The current legislation around consumer and business finance can be daunting for any business.
“Kennet is delighted to have supported Parsons Containers to become FCA authorised, since it will significantly increase the ability of the team there to broker both regulated and limited business finance.”
