With unprecedented growth needs, the company was looking to acquire properties to meet the increasing demands of heavy equipment clients throughout its territory. As well, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the firm was provided with working capital as a safety net to ride out this challenging period.
Through multiple loans, BDC’s Corporate Financing experts provided commercial real estate financing to acquire properties. The bank was able to offer a high percentage of financing that would not have been available at other financial institutions. BDC also provided working capital to help the company during the pandemic.
