Richardson Brothers Company Introduces GE Capital Solutions Program

Furniture World News on

The Richardson Brothers Company of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin is now offering its retail customers new financial programs that greatly extend repayment terms on inventory. The GE Capital Solutions’ programs enhance retailer cash flow and drive growth in the furniture industry. “The advantageous repayment terms will free up a retailer’s cash, allowing them to have greater purchasing power,” said Jim Richardson, President of Richardson Brothers. “We continue to make investments in our distribution base, and this is another way we add quality to our full line of collections.“ Through its Commercial Distribution Finance (CDF) unit, GE Capital Solutions developed new financing programs in response to furniture industry demand for financial tools that will assist retailers who are looking to grow their sales by leveraging longer financing periods. “Richardson Brothers is enabling its retailers to stock more products as close to the customer as possible,” said Bill Baptiste, CDF’s senior = vice president and Home Furnishings sales director. “The financing programs offer a strong solution to drive revenue and growth through higher credit lines and very competitive rates. The program also gives Richardson a competitive edge when negotiating for dedicated showroom space for their lines.” About Richardson Brothers Company Since 1848, Richardson Brothers Company has provided products deeply rooted in solid craftsmanship and solid wood.
