Primary industries served

Whether your market niche is flexo, sheet-fed or digital printing, pre-press, tag & label, corrugated, folding carton, finishing, flexible packaging, security in packaging materials, or substrates and materials, IFS is the financing and leasing expert to the Printing, Converting and Packaging Industry.

We understand the broad spectrum of equipment needs and changing technologies. Most importantly, we understand how this affects your bottom line. Acquiring new equipment is typically a step towards greater profitability – new equipment means increased production, manufacturing new products, or more efficiently producing existing products.

Financing your new equipment makes good sense because you are spreading out the payment of the equipment while it’s producing revenue. The goal when acquiring new equipment is to be cash flow positive the minute that equipment hits your floor (the new/increased revenue produced or cost savings recognized exceed the payment amount). In order to take full advantage of this greater profitability, the right type of equipment financing is crucial.

For over 37 years, IFS has been the financing and leasing expert to the Printing, Converting and Packaging industry. When it comes to financing your new and used production equipment, working with a financing source that knows the industry, knows the equipment, and works with all of the major manufacturers, just makes good business sense.

Our depth and breadth of knowledge of the industry, prompt response, accurate quoting, and unparalleled customer service saves you precious time and money!

Our motto is simple: Your success is our success.

The plastics industry includes a wide variety of specialized equipment to handle the many different aspects of plastic production. IFS has over 37 years of experience financing new and used plastics equipment encompassing the entire spectrum of the plastic equipment industry.

Some of the industries we serve are:

  • Plastic injection molding
  • Plastic blow molding
  • Rotational molding
  • Thermoforming
  • IFS knows that much of the equipment used in the plastics industry can be rebuilt to modern OEM standards, allowing us to specialize in financing or leasing refurbished plastic equipment. This ability gives our customers far more buying ability, while still being able to take advantage of competitive lease or finance terms.

Technology in the healthcare industry is always advancing along with equipment acquisition costs. Many hospitals, medical offices, specialty clinics, Dentists, nursing facilities, and other private healthcare practices use financing and leasing in order to obtain the latest technology and keep their budgets in line. Financing also allows you to move quickly as new technology is introduced into the market.

A custom designed finance or lease package allows our clients to stay up to date on technology, lower their costs and provide the best possible care to their patients. Financing or Leasing medical equipment saves working capital and allows the equipment to be paid for as you use it. Furthermore, leasing often has short term lengths so upgrades to new technology become easier and significantly more cost effective.

  • MRI Equipment
  • X-Ray Equipment
  • Ultrasound Equipment & Systems
  • Lab Equipment

IFS has been actively involved in the winter sports industry for over ten years, with a focus on equipment dedicated to the operation of Alpine Ski areas in the United States and Canada.

As skiers ourselves, our working knowledge of the industry allows us to offer very aggressive rates and terms, and also helps us approve non-traditional transactions within the industry. IFS has relationships in place with many of the top equipment manufacturers and dealers, and we have completed transactions from Tennessee to Alaska!

We offer both operating and capital leases on new and used equipment for:

  • Snow cats & snow groomers
  • Automated snow making equipment
  • Chair lifts & tow ropes
  • RFID Ticketing
  • Point of Sale equipment
  • Furniture and fixtures
  • Temporary structures
  • Inventory financing
  • Compressors

We often offer our clients seasonal payments, designing the optimum payment plan to match seasonal cash flow. Many of our clients choose to make five to six payments per year during their busiest times, and make no payments the remainder of the year. This cash flow freedom gives owners and operators peace of mind during those hot summer months.

Some of our resorts are a full year operation, and we have financed and leased mountain coasters, zip lines, and water parks, all with seasonal payments.

IFS is a proud member of The National Ski Areas Association. (NSAA) NSAA represents 325 alpine resorts that account for more than 90 percent of the skier/snowboarder visits nationwide. Additionally, it has 472 supplier members who provide equipment, goods and services to the mountain resort industry.

The term “Industrial Manufacturing” is broad in scope and encompasses several different industries. Regardless of your specific manufacturing specialty, equipment is expensive. Therefore, the right financing/lease solution is critical to getting the equipment you need, when you need it! Did you know that more than 80% of all businesses LEASE the equipment they acquire to streamline and expand their operations? Leasing has become the nation’s preferred way of financing manufacturing equipment.
