ATLANTA, GA, October 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- PrimeRevenue Inc., the largest platform for optimizing cash flow in global supply chain finance
, addresses financial and growth constraints in the UK automotive sector providing competitively priced, "on-demand" liquidity for UK automotive suppliers.
With an annual turnover of GBP40 billion and a workforce of over 700,000 people, the UK is a key global player in the automotive industry and the sector is a significant contributor to the UK's economy. Given that working capital efficiency and cash flow availability are critical for this capital-intensive sector, access to finance is vital for automotive companies seeking to invest for current and future growth.
The Society of Automotive Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) supports the interests of the UK automotive industry, promoting its position to government, stakeholders, and the media. According to a recent survey conducted by the SMMT, the main challenges reported by the majority of the UK's automotive suppliers include securing long-term business on the back of significant new investment by OEMs such as Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover and General Motors. Despite the market opportunities and desire to grow, UK suppliers are being starved of the finance they desperately need.
