Ignition Credit has funded surveying equipment worth £500k from manufacturer Opti-cal Survey Equipment and provided it to UK business Warner Surveys.
The deal, which Ignition said was one of the highest value single purchases in the UK surveying industry, was secured for Warner Surveys after the business decided to modernise its equipment.
Warner, based in London, Bristol and Reading, received more than 30 pieces of high-tech equipment including a Leica BLK360 3D Laser Scanner, world’s smallest imaging laser scanner.
Peter Field, managing director at Warner Surveys said: “The importance of being at the forefront of new technology cannot be understated within the Surveying profession. This latest investment enables Warner Surveys staff to operate at peak productivity whilst maintaining the highest standards of auditable accuracy.
Jim Warner, managing director at Opti-cal Survey Equipment said: “Opti-cal have been working with Warner Surveys for 15 years supplying a range of high-end survey equipment for an array of projects throughout this time.
“We supported Warner’s from initial advice on selecting the right equipment, through to the purchasing process on their latest investment of high precision equipment. With our added Service and Support we will continue to assist in every Construction and Topographical project that they work on.”
Paul Caunter, director at Ignition, said that purchasing multiple items at once when upgrading made good financial sense for Warner.
“Although this can seem daunting to business owners, it often means a more competitive deal can be reached, and by spreading the costs over an agreed period of time, financial forecasting becomes more manageable and predictable,” said Caunter
