The largest area of growth this past year has come from the company’s asset-based lines of credit and new syndication lending solution.

As a non-bank commercial finance company, Hitachi Business Finance offers syndicated credit hold positions ranging from $5-$25 million.

“2017 was truly a remarkable year for Hitachi Business Finance,” says President and COO Mike Semanco. “With the addition of our new lending product, as well as the opportunity to add experienced staff to the team, we were able to reach different markets and serve new clients. Both of these actions combined to make Hitachi Business Finance a more diversified, stronger company with an increased focus on helping companies of all sizes, from many different industries, grow and be successful.”

Additionally, Hitachi Business Finance continues toMikeSemanco serve its core client base of small- to medium-sized businesses with its factoring and ABL line of credit solutions.
