  • Finance: £50,000
  • Location: Conwy, North Wales
  • Asset: EVO Compact Post Driver
  • Paragon Deal team: Kyle Johnson

Paragon’s SME Lending division provided Conwy-based fencing contractor S.E. Metcalfe with the necessary financing to secure a new post driver for its operations, to support both the growth of its business and expand its range of services.

The Llanrwst firm acquired an EVO Compact Post Driver equipped with a 300kg hammer and a 2-way mast tilt. Paragon Bank provided the funding package to S.E. Metcalfe after being introduced by the manufacturer, Protech Machinery.

A provider of bespoke, environmentally friendly fencing solutions, S.E. Metcalfe worked closely with Paragon’s Agriculture team to develop a funding solution that complimented its business plans and growth goals.

S.E. Metcalfe today uses the post driver to support its work throughout North Wales and the wider region – which has included working with the National Trust, Snowdonia National Park and the Forestry Commission.

“Paragon is the ideal financing partner. The team took the time to understand our business, has practical expertise in the agricultural sector and worked with us to develop a financing solution that supports our goals and growth plans.

 “Thanks to the new post driver, we can offer clients an enhanced range of services and we look forward to delivering further high-profile projects in the years to come.”

Sion Metcalfe, S.E Metcalfe

“It has been fantastic to work with S.E. Metcalfe and to see the real benefit the new EVO Compact Post Driver will bring to its business. If our countryside is to be cared for and protected it is essential that businesses are able to acquire the right equipment for their operations – and Paragon is ready to work with them to ensure that they do.”
