Cat Finance from WesTrac 

Caterpillar Financial provides financing when it counts…

Cat Financial is on hand to help all Caterpillar customers, whether they are single machine operators or larger corporations, by providing access to financing the equipment they need – and fast.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc., Cat Financial offers financing and leasing across Cat’s entire product line, with services available for each market Caterpillar serves.

With a worldwide presence throughout North and South America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, Cat Financial is a trusted industry partner and, building on a strong relationship with WesTrac over the past 25 years, continues to take its Australian operation from strength to strength. Cat Financial customers throughout Western Australia, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory have benefited from this continued partnership.

Cat Financial provides financing exclusively for Caterpillar equipment, so its staff understand the customers’ specific needs and have a deep knowledge of the industry.  In addition, Cat Finance understands customers’ fundamental need to obtain equipment as quickly as possible in order to fulfil new contracts.

“We place a priority on expediting the process so the equipment is out on the job as quickly as possible,” Cat Financial National Sales Manager Chris Hogan said.

The benefit to the customer is “the convenience of getting the finance done quickly with a competitive interest rate,” NSW’s Turners Excavations Company Director Lew Turner affirmed.

The other key benefit is Cat Financial’s flexible repayment structure is designed to customise repayment plans around the specific challenges companies operating in the mining and construction sectors face.

“If a customer is paid in a certain fashion, we can tailor their repayments around that. For example, if you get paid on a 60-day basis or have a seasonal contract we’ll customise your repayment plan to better suit your cash flow,” Hogan said.

A field force of five territory managers, backed by an in-house ‘hot desk’ sales team provide the fast, efficient service in the delivery of Caterpillar machines that clients have come to expect.
