If you are a small business looking to expand, at some stage you will need to consider investing in, or upgrading your, plant equipment and machinery.
This can be a minefield, the cost can be considerable, and in these times of financial restraint, getting a loan to cover the costs is not easy.
It is a well known fact that many companies go bust as a result of over-reaching when trying to expand, so deciding when to purchase new equipment, and which equipment to purchase is crucial. In many cases, it can make better sense to hire the equipment until such time as your business can support the purchase of it's own equipmernt.
On our site, we will try to explain the pros and cons of the equipment available, and also advise on the hire versus purchase decision. Just follow the menu links on the right, and you won't go wrong.
If you have any specific questions about certain equipment, or need advice on how to use it, safety regulations etc, then let us know by using the contact link (top right) and we will attempt to address it on the site.
Remember, the difference between a successful small company and a successful large company is often just down the timing of the their decision to try expanding. We all need to plan carefully and consider all the options to prosper in the days of the credit crunch.
