Your business has very specific needs in an ever-changing world. We take the time to understand those needs. Whether you need to finance an acquisition, manage risk, or improve operational efficiency, we can support your business in the UK and overseas.

The sector faces challenges from many quarters: globalisation, shifting political and regulatory environments, technological advances, and demand for constant innovation. It’s vital that you’re supported by a bank that understands your business; a bank that understands your strategy and supports your ambitions.

Our team offers a full range of banking services and products. We can work with you to provide solutions tailored to your business needs. We want to make sure that you have the right financial support, from trade and supply chain management to asset finance and access to capital markets.


Manufacturing continues to be one of the most strategically relevant sectors for global economies. The sector makes a significant contribution to GDP and overall employment. Lloyds Bank is proud to continue investing financial and intellectual capital to support the growth ambitions of manufacturers in the UK and abroad.

Lloyds Bank is committed to supporting the UK manufacturing sector. That’s why we pledged £10 million to the Manufacturing Technology Centre, to help train more than 3,500 manufacturing apprentices, graduates and engineers by 2024.

Our highly experienced team has built up a wealth of cross sector expertise. We have experts in chemicals, packaging, aerospace, defence and global diversified capital goods companies. Our team is well placed to support the day-to-day and complex banking needs of our multinational client base.

Our purpose is simple – to be the bank of choice for manufacturing.


Our team is dedicated to helping our clients achieve their goals. We work with clients across three distinct subsectors – automotive, passenger transport and logistics.

  • Automotive: We support global OEMs throughout the supply chain – including end users, such as leasing businesses and dealerships. Our trade finance and cash management products help to make the trade cycle as smooth as possible from export to import. We also support end consumers through our consumer finance division, Black Horse.
  • Passenger transport: We work with UK-focused airlines, bus and rail operators, and manufacturers. We support our clients with traditional bank lending, capital and financial markets services, and infrastructure finance.
  • Logistics: The transportation of goods is a growing marketplace – especially in the age of ecommerce. We help our clients in the UK and overseas to benefit from this ever increasing demand


Our society is built on infrastructure. Construction alone contributes tremendously to the UK economy, employs over 3 million people, and supports 374,000 businesses. Infrastructure is an important growth driver and a cornerstone sector for Lloyds Bank.

Our team supports clients through the entire supply chain and lifecycle of infrastructure projects. We offer a full range of banking services – from debt finance and risk management, to transaction banking tools. Our award-winning project finance practice has been active since 1992. We have a long history of providing innovative financing solutions across the infrastructure, energy and telecom sectors. The team originates, structures and underwrites a wide range of financing solutions. We work with our sister company, Scottish Widows, to provide financing to support essential economic and social infrastructure projects in the UK.
