Forklift manufacturer UniCarriers Americas Corp. (UCA) will offer its dealers a private financial program through a partnership with the Dutch vendor finance firm DLL, the company said today.
The "UniCarriers Capital" program is funded and administered by Eindhoven, Netherlands-based DLL and will support all UniCarriers forklift models, including the newly-added Rocla AGVs.
Through UniCarriers Capital, UCA offers both retail and wholesale financial support with custom products and services. Dealers can take advantage of key benefits like one-stop shopping, competitive rates, and enhanced residuals, higher approval rates, digital sales tools, and a dedicated DLL sales representative (U.S. only).
In addition, there is a new rental program with a 3-month principal deferral option and extended rate protection to support a longer interest rate lock. "DLL's relationship with UniCarriers dates back to 2004," Neal Garnett, DLL's Global Business Unit President, Construction, Transportation & Industrial, said in a release. "We are excited to deepen our mutually-beneficial partnership with UniCarriers to provide more value to their end users via the UniCarriers Capital brand."
Marengo, Ill.-based UniCarriers says UniCarriers Capital is one component of UniCarriers System Solutions, and supports dealers located in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, with plans to expand into Central and South America. "The mission of UniCarriers System Solutions is to offer our dealers and their customers a total suite of essential business services," UniCarriers Americas President and CEO James J. Radous III said in a release. "Partnering with one of our key and reputable suppliers like DLL is exciting because we can offer our dealers the financial support they need to sustain and grow their businesses."
