UK Animal Feed Manufacturer Announces Capital Loan.

March 10 2010 -- UK animal feed manufacturer B Tickle & Sons has secured a [pounds sterling]250,000 working capital facility from NatWest Bank to support a seasonal increase in demand for its products.

The family business, which operates a compound feed mill in Speke, manufactures animal feedstuffs such as pellets and coarse mixes used by cattle, sheep and dairy farmers.

Managing director Adam Tickle told Feedinfo News Service that the loan will be used to refinance the 150-year-old firm. He added: "We manufacture ruminant only specialist feeds which we sell into the trade."

Mr Tickle said the peak period for the business lasts until the end of April, and the NatWest funding ensures the company has sufficient working capital in place to meet the demand.
