Leeds manufacturer to expand into new markets and create jobs following six-figure investment

Leeds-based manufacturer of printed marketing and communication materials, Alpha Card Compact Media Ltd, has secured a six-figure investment through NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, managed by FW Capital and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF).

An international exporter, Alpha Card has over 15 years’ experience of manufacturing and distributing hundreds of millions of printed marketing materials, such as Z-Fold Cards and Infinity Folding Cards, throughout Europe, North America, Australia and Africa.

The business’s portable, retainable and reusable devices are used in virtually every sector for diverse applications. Its clients range from the creative industry, government, education, sport and charity through to major high street names and multinationals such as Shell and Toyota.

The investment from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund will provide additional working capital for export growth and will allow the company to expand into new markets. Funding will also lead to  the creation of four new roles at the business, as it looks to grow the numbers of staff. The deal was facilitated by FW Capital Investment Executive Andy Castle.

FW Capital Investment Executive Andy Castle said: “We are delighted to support Alpha Card, a highly-regarded company that has the manufacturing expertise to deliver industry-leading products both quickly and efficiently. Alpha Card has created new jobs with this investment and has forecasted continued growth, meaning their important products can now be delivered to even more clients.”

Ian Whitfield, Alpha Card Managing Director, said: “At Alpha Card, we are passionate about creating engagement for our clients with their audiences using clever printed marketing. We pride ourselves on our vast product knowledge and adaptability and work tirelessly to maximise value for all our clients.

“This investment from FW Capital will support us as we create new jobs and expand into new markets.”
