Valvetek Machining specialise in ‘medium to heavy’ machining. They have a vast experience in the valve and offshore industries with stainless, duplex, ali-bronze & ferrous materials. However, they machine most materials (including exotics) in cast, forged, bar stock or fabricated forms. Their non-valve product portfolio is also wide and they apply skills and exacting standards supporting many engineering disciplines.
As they are a growing business, future planning is vital to their success. Being in a position where they had to make a decision to employ finance staff or outsource, they were recommended to Wintersgill Associates. Once they had their first meeting, the decision was easy, the benefits were clear.
"Wintersgill Associates not only give us the figures, but also a visual representation of the current financial situation and the plan for the future, this is a great advancement for our business and has really improved our financial decision making process"
Paul enables us to have the benefit of a finance director without the major costs of employment. Our decisions on growing, financing and controlling the business are now made much clearer and quicker, with excellent reports and regular monthly meetings.
We have recently made a major purchase of a new machine for the business, this was made easier with the input from Paul, who assisted with the location of the correct method for financing and also chaired all meetings to ensure we kept our costs down and got the best deal.
Always tricky organisations to deal with, we are delighted that Paul chairs all our financial negotiations, from bank overdrafts to major financing deals
With his knowledge across the manufacturing sector Paul has become an excellent sounding board. Not only does he understand our business intimately he can also provide key information on benchmarking, which means that he can be an excellent sounding board for any business strategy decision.
Just to make it quite clear, Paul is not the only one at Wintersgill Associates, he has a strong team alongside him who will do all our accounts including Payroll and the day to day transactions as necessary.
