deal for security specialists
Henry Howard Finance (HHF) has won a lucrative £6m deal to
provide lease funding to clients of the security systems arm of
G4S, formerly Group 4 Securicor.

He added: “It is great that an independent company can sign a
deal of this magnitude. We see it as a significant breakthrough. It
has tremendous possibilities for us and is something we can build
on to become an even bigger player in our market place.”
