What were you doing 20 years ago?


We remember vividly what we were doing - creating Baker Leasing Ltd!

Charles had a vision of creating a leasing company that had customer service at its heart and a family ethos. The goal was to build long term business relationships with resellers and customers alike and we are proud to say this has been achieved. Today, as well as continually working with new customers and resellers, many of those we serve have worked with us since day one.

The longevity and success of Baker Leasing is a testament to the hard work of Charles and all of the Baker Leasing team. No matter what is happening in the economic climate and the challenges faced Baker Leasing have stood strong.
