About Us

Belvidere Capital LLC, a division of Aaron Equipment Company, Inc. is an independent asset-based lender created to deliver insightful, strategic equipment finance solutions to our clients. We assist companies that find themselves in need of financing while encountering circumstances, which preclude them from borrowing from more traditional sources. Our eight decades of experience in the valuation and disposition of industrial assets provides incomparable knowledge of how to help clients monetize the value of their operating plants and facilities.

Belvidere Capital provides equipment term loans based on the value of your industrial machinery and equipment assets, not on a measure of historical cash flow or leverage ratios. The reasons that firms turn to BC vary but often include:

  • Financing Solutions from $500,000 to over $10,000,000
  • Help for Start-Ups to Seasoned Businesses
  • Time Sensitive Funding for all Credit Profiles in order to:
    • Continue operations while undergoing a formal turnaround.
    • Relieve pressure being applied by the current lender.
    • Obtain additional capital to fulfill a new opportunity or recover from a challenging situation.
    • Clean up past due payables.
    • Pay off judgments, liens and/or tax obligations that are hindering growth.
    • Acquire new/updated machinery utilizing the equity in existing assets.

At Belvidere Capital we truly understand how important “time to close” can be for a business undergoing stress. Our application and approval process is fast, straight forward and respectful and there are no credit committees or detailed financial requirements/covenants.

About Our Senior Managers

Belvidere’s Senior Managers have owned and operated manufacturing/wholesale and service companies. Our experience ranges across industrial manufacturing, consumer manufacturing, to logistics. We’ve managed firms in distress, been hands-on in shop floors, managed vender relations, kept the bankers at bay and fought to keep employee moral up during challenging times. This experience provides us with understanding, empathy and ideas that help get deals done. Likely a bit different from most other lenders.

In the ever-changing, unpredictable and overly regulated banking world, finding reliable, non-traditional funding is more important than ever for companies who don’t fit the “traditional banking profile”. So, there are many reasons that a company might look to Belvidere Capital for our creative lending options such as:

  • Companies that no longer meet the lending criteria of banks.
  • The need to unlock equity from existing equipment.
  • A reorganizing of the business.
  • Plant expansion or start-up of a new/additional operation.
  • Management or partner buy out.
  • Strengthening of company’s cash position.
  • Capital to execute on a new contract or opportunity.
