IEF provides asset finance in the form of hire purchase and leasing for the engineering, printing and plastics industries. John Goodfellow, chief executive and director of the Skipton, said: “The acquisition of IEF is yet another exciting addition to the Skipton Group and further enhances our philosophy of modern mutuality.”
