Leasing: An Alternative Funding Source
Equipment leasing is a $30 billion dollar annual business and an appropriate method for providing financing for capital expenditures versus using available bank lines of credit.
Banking facilities should be reserved primarily for working capital and left available to borrowers for short-term needs. Leasing needed equipment for production or other capital expenditures enables you to keep your bank lines free for normal business needs (e.g. payroll, inventory, carry receivables).
There are a variety of reputable, competitive leasing companies that would be ready, willing, and able to issue you a proposal for your consideration so that you can compare intelligently and select the best terms for your needs.
In any case, consider leasing as an alternative funding source to preserve your working capital and to avoid concentration with a single funding source.
Cambridge Capital Corporation provides leases for companies that want to preserve working capital.
