The company has provided in excess of 3 billion dollars in financing and has an established reputation for providing dependable, innovative investment and financing products. UFI specializes in providing traditional as well as creative, specialty structured financial products and services tailored to the needs of its contractors, federal and municipal governments, and commercial customers.
The company provides equipment acquisition financing through indirect contractor origination sources. UFI currently holds contracts with a number of contractor clients that are rated investment grade by investors rating services. The underlying obligor customers are high-quality credits and include municipal agencies (school districts, universities, hospitals, judicial systems) and U.S. federal government agencies (DOD, DOE, NASA, VA, U.S. Post Office, and others).
UFI has consistently focused on providing reliable customer service and support, including customized individual financing structures, as well as a wide array of established equipment financing products and services.
