Pal International, the British hygiene products manufacturer, has moved its banking to HSBC to support its international ambitions post-Brexit

A family-run company based in Leicestershire, Pal International manufactures a wide range of cleaning and disinfectant wipes for professional use, particularly targeting the medical and food manufacturing sectors.

The deal with HSBC will support the company as it purchases new equipment, continues international growth and promotes expansion into the professional healthcare environment.

Pal International said it plans to expand in markets beyond Europe, targeting new industries such as the aerospace, automotive and pharmaceutical sectors. The HSBC funding will provide vital assistance as the company expands its manufacturing to meet demand in these industries, the company said.

The bank’s access to and understanding of foreign markets was a key driver for the deal. The bank’s international platforms and events will allow Pal International the opportunity to explore exciting new territories, as they expand operations into the Middle East, South East Asia and Central Asia Pacific. The business expects the international expansion will grow the business’ annual turnover by 60% by 2022.
