Aston’s impressive growth boosted by funding from Seneca

Aston’s impressive growth boosted by funding from Seneca

Aston Microphones are the UK’s sole designer and manufacturer of high-quality vocal and instrument microphones.

The business was founded in 2015 by James Young, Alan Gavin and Phil Smith and has grown rapidly since inception. Support from the professional music community has been very strong with over 600 high-profile artists, producers and engineers endorsing and using Aston Microphones both in the studio and on tour.

Seneca Trade Partners are delighted to be supporting Aston Microphones with a Trade Finance Solution, allowing them to increase production of their microphones to keep pace with their rapidly growing order book.

Our facility has enabled Aston Microphones to bring their innovative new products to market with a significant UK stock holding, so that orders can be fulfilled immediately from stock held in their warehouse. It took less than 7 days from the date of the first meeting to completion.

James Young, Aston Microphones CEO, said “Seneca Trade Partners moved very quickly in order to get this facility set up for us. It will enable us to increase payments to suppliers to meet our growing demand for the products. The fact that Seneca Trade Partners is owner-managed means that we dealt with the decision makers from day one and the whole process went very smoothing and very quickly. We look forward to working with Seneca to deliver the next phase of growth of Aston Microphones as we continue to bring new, UK manufactured, products to market”.
