We’re pleased to report that Acceptance Leasing and Financing Service, Inc., (ALFS) located near Pittsburgh in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, continues to be a key player in its niche market for small and mid‐sized manufacturing businesses seeking easy access for commercial equipment funding. In fact, deals closed at mid‐November 2018 were 23% greater than at this time last year.

Much of our success is attributable to Carl Villella, President of our company and a designated Certified Lease and Finance Professional. Carl has been serving the truss industry since 1995, and as a member of WTCA/SBCA and a BCMC attendee knows many of the players in the business. He is knowledgeable about the equipment as well, and has helped to fund both new and used equipment, whether sold by a vendor or a private party. Moreover, we can now fund truss equipment for up to $500K on an Application Only status for some select vendors, eliminating a lot of the financial paperwork requirements.

“We benefit from 26 years in the business, and have a wide breadth of vendors and clients that deal with us,” Carl adds. “Many of our clients do repeat business with us, a good sign that they are pleased with what we can provide.”

The ALFS client base spans the entire country, with expertise in the truss manufacturing and independent supermarket chain business. Because of the level and amount of business ALFS transacts, the company has preferred status with funders, and therefore can offer its clients attractive rates.

We have many programs available at ALFS. In addition to the Application Only program mentioned above, there are programs that can defer payments, or keep them at a minimum for seasonal businesses. Indeed, Carl prides himself on placing the client with the funder most likely to approve the deal, regardless of time in business or credit score.

The ALFS team is proud to be a member of this industry and we hope to continue serving this market for many years to come. When you have questions, feel free to contact Carl at 412-262‐3225 or check out the ALFS website at Let us help you grow your business next.
