It’s essential to have good business partners. Barclays has been our principal banker for many years and also one of our main asset finance providers. We’d like that to continue.

Lawrence Isles, Group Treasurer, Dawsongroup


“The purchase of Transflex was difficult, complex and had to be delivered to tight timescales. Barclays helped us greatly in the process and were very supportive all the way through.”

Tony Coleman, Group Finance Director, Dawsongroup

  • Dawsongroup is a very successful 3rd generation family business, specialising in the supply of commercial vehicles
  • Established in 1935 originally as a haulage business, the company is now one of the leading UK asset rental businesses
  • A number of strategic acquisitions have supported Dawsongroup’s growth over the years
  • The recent purchase of a competitor, Transflex, out of administration, allowed them to expand their reach in the North East plus save 80 jobs
  • This acquisition also enabled Dawsongroup to accelerate their growth plans by an estimated three to four years
