SCS & Centrogen Pty Ltd.
In 2004, a rapid growth period for our business was brought about by the acquisition of Centrogen by the SCS group. The amalgamation of the combined operations proceeded under the Centrogen business identity, with profitable business growth compounding at 30 – 40% over the next 10 years.
AAA+ Financial Solutions were engaged in 2004 to assist with structuring our finance arrangements and providing financial and general business advice for the group.
The breadth of skills, insight and experience that the team from AAA+ Financial Solutions brought to our business over the many years of association, helped tremendously in good times and not so good – with their professional assistance we were able to continuously grow and develop our business into a truly national organisation.
The team from AAA quickly became an integral part of our financial and management team, bringing with them valued ideas and options which enabled us to negotiate even the most intense contract conditions. Their affiliation to other organisations proved very helpful, in particular when managing our cashflow and securing funding for growth.
The owners of the SCS and Centrogen group understood the need to utilise the team from AAA at all times during the acquisition-growth-consolidation-sale processes of being in business.
Our association with AAA concluded only as a result of the successful sale of SCS and Centrogen group.
John Ready was the co-founder of J.P & A.L Ready Spraying Contractors with his wife Alison and grew the business over 40 years until retiring upon the sale of the SCS group in 2019.
