History

The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association was founded as the Association of Equipment Lessors in 1961. In a relatively short time, the equipment leasing industry grew from a fledgling industry to a major force in the U.S. economy. In 2011, the association celebrated its 50th anniversary. Today, the association is looking forward to another 50 years of equipping business for success.
