Advantage+: An Equipment Leasing Company
Advantage+ is an equipment leasing company that serves businesses throughout the country. Most loans range from $2,000 to $200,000. We’re a direct lender, not a broker—this means we self-fund and loans stay in-house.
Our founders worked in commercial banking for decades before starting Advantage. Based on this experience they concluded small businesses weren’t adequately understood or served by the lending industry. They saw an opportunity to fill this gap. So, with the help of like-minded investors and supportive banks, they started Advantage in 1992. The company has been consistently profitable.
Advantage has lent nearly one-half billion dollars to over 15,000 businesses. Our staff enjoys meeting the individual needs of every customer. Each month we fund up to one hundred loans totaling two million dollars.
As our equipment leasing company has grown so has our capital base, our investor and bank support. Our banks believe small business is our economy’s backbone. And they use Advantage as a conduit to help keep it strong.
Most new loans come through equipment manufacturers, distributors, and dealers that use our financing to help their customers buy equipment. About 40% of our loans come from existing or previous borrowers, and a growing number of requests come directly from borrowers, through our website and word of mouth.
Our base of customers and vendors continues to grow. Our team’s challenge is to grow with this base while maintaining service and quality. Our goal is to be the best at what we do. We’re meeting the challenge and our goal is in sight.
