What our clients say

Stuart Whitehouse, Director - Flotronic Pumps

Having identified the business I wished to acquire, Springboard provided in preparing a formal business plan, identifying potential lenders and securing the necessary finance. They also provided practical and helpful advice throughout the process. I have used them for both a business sale and an acquisition and they have proved equally adept at both.
