About Us

At FirstMark – we understand the financial challenges small and mid-size business face in taking their business to the next level.  It can be tough out there.

That’s why we founded FirstMark back in 2000 as a premier equipment leasing and finance group catering to contractors and trucking outfits.  We survived those tough years through 2008 and beyond right along with you helping companies just like yours.  During those years FirstMark extended its reach to include servicing the needs to new industries including industrial, material handling, trucking & transportation, medical, information technology and eventually aircraft. Our goal has always been to provide smart equipment financing solutions and make the whole process simple fast and professional.  We deliver easy access financing solutions and exceptional service to real grass roots businesses just like yours.  The FirstMark approach features quick approvals through our easy one page application – followed by quick funding direct to the seller – so you can get your equipment funded and get it in place and working for you – fast.

Professional – easy – quick – with great terms. What could be better than that?
