Bathgate announces Strategic Partnership with Chamber

Bathgate Business Finance will be sharing its expertise with Knowsley businesses, through a 12-month Strategic Partnership with Knowsley Chamber of Commerce.

As well as bringing its knowledge base and networks to the table, the partnership will also allow Bathgate to take an active role in shaping the future for Knowsley’s economy through thought leadership and sharing of best practice, making new connections, embedding itself in the local community and contributing to the chamber’s campaigns to support local enterprise.

Paul Trickett, business development manager at Bathgate Business Finance, said: “We are a sector-agnostic business. Our success is built on developing strong relationships with businesses, professional service peers and traditional and alternative funders, and clients regardless of sector – not just while a deal is being done, but long-term.

“We work closely with businesses to really understand their business goals, challenges and needs, so we can identify the very best solution for them and get it over the line as quickly and efficiently as possible.

“Knowsley is absolutely packed with potential, with advanced manufacturing, freight and logistics all driving growth in the borough, and other exciting developments stimulating the local economy.

“Our strategic partnership with Knowsley Chamber will allow us to support its work to help local businesses achieve their potential through providing appropriate, efficient and effective routes to finance.”

Renowned for its focus on delivering excellent service and championing SMEs, Bathgate last year won two awards at the prestigious National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (NACFB) Commercial Broker Awards 2023 – SME Champion and Service Excellence award – as well as winning Professional Services Business of the Year at the Merseyside Independent Business Awards (MIBS).

Lesley Martin-Wright Chief Executive at Knowsley Chamber of Commerce said: “We’re delighted to welcome Bathgate Business Finance as our latest Strategic Partner.  Having joined the Chamber just last year it’s testament to Bathgate’s commitment to Knowsley and our thriving business community that they have made this decision.

“As an award-winning company with an established reputation, Bathgate has an excellent track record for delivering financial advice and solutions to businesses at all stages of their journey.  This strategic partnership is a positive development which will undoubtedly enrich the Chamber’s objective of helping businesses to invest, grow and become more commercially successful”.
