Manufacturers, you know, are industrial, and for most of us, we know how to develop, how to manufacture, how to bring innovation and technology into play. But our customer, they need, in order to integrate those solutions, the financial ability to acquire that equipment.

Kevin Abergel – VP of Sales and Marketing

Well as a company, we do not have our own financing arm. This is something that we’ve never, you know, we manufacture equipment, we are not a bank. And one of the key things for us was to be able to find a partner that can actually understand our needs, understand our customers’ needs, and be able to make that transition as smooth as possible.

Michael Abergel – Executive VP and Managing Director

And without that ability to offer your customer that facility, the picture would dramatically change for most, probably 95% of the manufacturing operations on this floor.

I think today equipment financing is vital, it’s probably the biggest obstacle for both manufactures who sell equipment and buyers who want to buy equipment, is finding not only competitive lease rates, but intelligently structured leases that can actually make life easier for them. So, for us, I can tell you that most of these deals are reliant on having a good finance partner. So, from our standpoint, a vital point of success is that leasing partner that we are able to work with. And by working with Amur, we have really found that, so we’re really very happy to be a close partner as of today.
