Simply Asset Finance are delighted to welcome on board Chiltern Civils and Infrastructure Ltd

After several months of working with fellow Cabot Square Capital backed company LDF and having now secured our own funding from British Business Bank, we are delighted to welcome our first customer under our own book.

Chiltern Civils and Infrastructure Ltd is a specialist Civil Engineering company based in Northamptonshire with operations throughout the UK.

Purchased in October 2017 by Jay Hawkes (CEO), the company is experiencing rapid growth and Jay recognised the need to develop a relationship with an asset finance provider that could react quickly to his company’s financial needs.

Jay needed to purchase some construction equipment that was essential to the development of his business. With the help of our industry specialist, Penny Dee, and our dedicated support team, we were able to approve the deal and make payment to the supplier within three hours ensuring that Jay avoided any delays in meeting the needs of his customers.


On Thursday 11th January 2018 I purchased some construction equipment from Shellplant Ltd our supplier. Penny Dee was extremely supportive and managed to ensure a same day pay out to our supplier. For a new lender in the market place Simply Asset Finance managed to underwrite, complete paperwork and make payment to our supplier within 3 hours. I think this is an all-time record for any deal I have even done within the asset finance market.

Moving forward I will ensure my group of companies place our finance requirements with the team at Simply Asset Finance as they understand the customer’s requirements and needs. Very well done to all of the team from all at Chiltern Civils!

Jay Hawkes,
CEO of Chiltern Civils and Infrastructure Ltd

We wish Jay every success in his new venture and look forward to a long relationship in helping his business grow. For further information about Chiltern Civils, please visit the website
