RACINE, Wis., (January 16, 2007) - Putzmeister America, Inc. has joined forces with CNH Capital, the financial services business of agricultural and construction equipment maker CNH Global N.V., to offer Putzmeister Advantage Plus - a dedicated line of credit that Putzmeister customers can use for their day-to-day parts, service and accessory purchases.
"CNH Capital is a perfect fit for us," says Matthias Heinz, Vice President Finance and CFO of Putzmeister America, Inc. "CNH Capital has a solid understanding of our customer base and our industry, and we are confident that the Putzmeister Advantage Plus account will enrich our customers' parts and service experience."
Putzmeister Advantage Plus will be offered to the company's approximately 25 distributors and 400-plus customers throughout the U.S. and Canada. Following are just a few of the many benefits of Putzmeister Advantage Plus:
  • Extremely Flexible Repayment Terms. As an account holder, Putzmeister customers will have an easy to use credit line and a minimum 25-day grace period. No interest is charged if the balance is paid in full every month, or customers may choose to pay as little as 3% of the balance to optimize cash flow.
  • Eligibility for Special Quarterly Promotions. Putzmeister will offer unique promotional programs each quarter. The first promotion will be offering no payments and interest for 90 days with purchases over $1,000 for qualified account holders. This promotion will run through the end of March.
  • Easier Monthly Account Administration. Account holders receive a detailed monthly statement and have the ability to track their Putzmeister parts and service purchases and account status online.
  • Enhanced Customer Support. Enrolling in Putzmeister Advantage Plus is another way to enrich the Putzmeister parts and service experience. In addition to excellent support from Putzmeister, customers will enjoy superior service from CNH Capital.
