Manufacturer of printed marketing and communication materials, Alpha Card Compact Media, has secured a six-figure investment through NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, managed by FW Capital and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF).
An international exporter, Leeds-based Alpha Card has over 15 years’ experience of making and distributing hundreds of millions of printed marketing materials, such as Z-Fold Cards and Infinity Folding Cards, throughout Europe, North America, Australia and Africa.
The business’ clients range from the creative industry, government, education, sport and charity through to major high street names and multinationals such as Shell and Toyota.
The investment from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund will provide additional working capital for export growth and will allow the company to expand into new markets.
Funding will also lead to the creation of four new roles at the business, as it looks to grow the numbers of staff.
The deal was facilitated by FW Capital investment executive, Andy Castle.
