Andy Fairbanks, with 11 years of experience working in dental laboratories and clinics, wanted to create a high quality service in a professional environment for clients to enjoy.
In September 2011 he opened Fairbanks Dental Laboratories offering a wide range of services including crowns, veneers, bridges and implants. His services also include ‘The Smile Clinic’, a new and innovative way for patients to view their perfect smile using the latest CAD/CAM software.
Andy started his business venture with intent to grow within the future years. The company grew quicker than expected which was great, although he didn’t have the capability to run these new requirements without investing in new premises and new technology.
Initially I contacted my bank but they were unable to help me. I then approached Finance For Enterprise who from the off were fantastic. Within a few days I had a meeting with Andrew who took the time to listen to what I needed and understood my situation. Thanks to Donbac I now have a new building all functional and have taken on another member of staff and in the process of looking for another. Without the help from Finance For Enterprise my progression would have been drawn to a halt. Thank you very much to Andrew and the team, “commented Andy Fairbanks.
“We were happy that we could invest in an early stage business with genuine growth potential and it’s great news that we also enabled them to take on an additional members to the team”, said Andrew Austwick, Investment Manager at Finance For Enterprise.
