ITW Leasing and Finance has extended its interest-free credit scheme until further notice.
The division was formed last year to support dealers and operators during the pandemic, offering cooking, warewash and food prep products from Hobart Equipment Division, refrigeration from Foster and Gamko, and retail system scales and software from Avery Berkel.
Rebecca Vincent, UK sales director for Foster and Gamko, said: “It was originally a short-term helping hand for our customers, but after proving so popular we’re delighted that it is now available indefinitely so we can continue supporting the industry.”
Tim Bender, sales director for Hobart Equipment, commented: “With indoor hospitality now open across the UK, we’re seeing an increase in interest as the industry are restarting their operations. Our offer allows them to have access to the top-quality products our companies are known for.”
While Gary Wilson, commercial director at Avery Berkel, added: “Interest-free finance has added payment flexibility that has really helped our customers budget effectively. Owning best in class system scales has never been easier or more affordable.”
ITW’s interest-free credit means that operators can pay for their products over 12, 18 or 24 months, and with the 3-month payment holiday, there’s nothing to pay for the first 12 weeks.
As ITW is the lender, not a broker, applications can be approved quicker and reportedly have a 99% rate of approval, so customers can get access to the equipment they need without delay.
