De Lage Landen Financial Services, a global provider of high-quality asset-based financing products to manufacturers and distributors of capital goods, is pleased to announce that its office in Oakville, Ontario is about to mark its 10th anniversary in the equipment lease financing business.
When De Lage Landen Canada opened its doors on February 14, 2000, it had 10 staff members, and its focus was mainly on the office equipment sector. After 10 very successful years, the Canada office has expanded into the healthcare, agriculture, office technology, transportation, and construction and industrial sectors, and it is now supported by the expertise of more than 180 employees across the country.
Thanks to the financial strength of De Lage Landen's parent company, Rabobank, the Canada office's access to capital has consistently ensured safety and stability for its financing partners, and has successfully grown the office's portfolio to more than $1.0B (Cdn).
