Financing is often a question when it comes to increasing productivity, efficiencies, and competitiveness through equipment.

Preserve your cash & operating lines of credit

Cash flow and liquidity are essential to any business. Equipment financing loans and equipment financing leases can help you preserve your cash and/or liquidity instead of tying up your working capital on equipment. With equipment financing, your working capital can then be allocated to business expenses, expansion, and other business priorities.

Equipment Financing and Leasing Services

Custom financing based on your business needs

Equipment Finance Loan

An equipment finance loan can help you acquire more, higher-end equipment that gives your business a competitive edge while not being limited to your current cash or credit line.

Capital Lease

A capital equipment lease or finance lease is treated like an asset on your company’s balance sheet. A capital lease is more like owning property where you take the depreciation.

True Lease

A true equipment lease or tax lease is a multi-year lease in which the payment terms are comparatively lower than capital leases. The lease is called “true” because the lessor claims depreciation benefits and the lessee claims the lease payments as an expense.

TRAC Lease

A TRAC lease (Terminal Rental Adjustment Clause lease) is a tax-oriented lease of qualified motor vehicles and trailers. This structure can be very beneficial as it provides a wide variety of options to improve and better manage cash flow and tax position.
