Williams Refrigeration has partnered with Academy Leasing in order to offer funding solutions and bespoke finance packages for its refrigerators, suitable for a range of budgets.
The package includes the option of a 3-month period of discounted payments to help lower initial outlay. The 3 months discount is designed to help end users as they reopen after lockdown.
Refrigeration equipment plays a vital role in professional food safety and hygiene regimes, but with budgets tightening many operators may not feel they are able to afford equipment from manufacturers like Williams that allows them to meet the new standards.
Williams has been offering competitive leasing options for years, and during the lockdown the company has been working to introduce low cost and low risk ways to help businesses get the equipment they need, rather than the equipment they can currently afford.
Williams has teamed with Academy Leasing because it is able to provide bespoke finance packages suitable for a range of budgets, with flexible terms allowing companies to spread the cost of investment.
Operators can begin the lease with three lower monthly payments, instead of starting at the usual rate, to free up cash flow. For example, a Williams bottle cooler would typically cost around £1,000. Under the new Williams leasing deal, the first 3 months on a 5-year lease would cost £6.11, followed by 57 payments of £23.65.
The lease can be used on all types of Williams equipment, from undercounter cabinets, to specialist equipment such as blast chillers and bespoke coldrooms. A single lease can be used to buy multiple products – and it could also cover cooking equipment and other appliances.
Malcolm Harling, sales and marketing director of Williams Refrigeration, said: “Many businesses are having to make big decisions about every aspect of their operation as part of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The additional benefit of beginning the lease with lower payments for 3 months will help to free up cash flow during a critical period for businesses, whether they’re buying new or upgrading. These new leasing options are just part of Williams’ commitment to provide innovative, flexible solutions to meet the challenges of the lockdown and its aftermath.”

Furthermore, companies can claim a tax allowance against any leased equipment, and it does not affect any existing credit lines.
