Funding strategies and levels of capital investment can change how much government support is available to your utility company. Our expert guidance and flexible leasing options include contract hire, contract purchase and sale leaseback, so you can choose the funding option that best suits your organisation’s needs, maximises your government support and ensures that you’re providing the best service possible for your customers.
Managing a utilities fleet can be a complex and challenging process.
