Columbia, Md, Aug. 12, 2014 – Hitachi Government Finance, a division of Hitachi Capital America Corp., today announced a new partnership with Lafayette Federal Credit Union.

The partnership allows the two organizations to combine their resources to offer government receivables financing and cash management services to companies that range from small, economically disadvantaged businesses, to mature, publicly traded companies that provide goods and services to U.S. government agencies, selected local governments, and as subcontractors to larger prime contractors. Typical clients have monthly financing needs from $50,000 to $20 million.

“Our experience in handling government contracts, including assignments and funding appropriations, enables us to help companies maneuver through the bureaucracy efficiently,” said Hitachi Government Finance Division Manager Joe Bennett. “Our team has more than 60 years of combined experience, so we are very familiar with the challenges government contractors face and how to create responsible financing solutions that allow for opportunity and growth.”

Government receivables financing is perfect for companies looking to: • Finance growth • Pay for materials • Fund payroll • Finance turnaround situations • Prepare for seasonal demands

“Lafayette Federal Credit Union has been looking for additional avenues to offer commercial financing to its members,” said Harbaksh Chhatwal of Lafayette Federal Credit Union. “We feel that teaming up with Hitachi Government Finance is an excellent opportunity for our members to grow their respective companies with a trusted leader in the financial space.”
