Some of the world’s largest and most prestigious construction and industrial equipment manufacturers count on PNC Vendor Finance every day to help move more units through their distribution channels.
With proven industry experience in the development, implementation and growth of finance programs for this sector, we custom-build products and programs specifically to meet the profitability goals, growth and expansion strategies of our construction manufacturer partners, their end users and service providers.
PNC Vendor Finance delivers the solutions-based financing programs that leading industry professionals require. Unlike many financial organizations, we have not built our business — and our reputation — on a strategy of simply seeking transactional opportunities. Our goal is to build deep relationships with select manufacturers and vendors that become long-term and mutually beneficial relationships.
Our program finance professionals are all highly skilled and committed to a consultative approach — listening to and understanding your specific needs to deliver comprehensive and highly structured finance solutions for you and your customers.
