Arbuthnot Commercial Asset Based Lending (ABL) has completed a £2m invoice discounting facility to support Premier House Investment’s acquisition of Ralph Coleman International Ltd (RCI).

The facility will also provide ongoing working capital, which will help the company proceed with its expansion plans.

Paul Hampton, director at RCI, added: “We have a fantastic opportunity to extend our range of services, which are synergistic to our core crate washing offering.

“These will deliver substantial logistical and cost benefits to our food retail clients, and Arbuthnot Commercial ABL’s facility is a significant part of these expansion plans.
