GE Capital’s Commercial Distribution Finance (CDF) and Brunswick Corp announced that they have extended their dealer finance programmes in the US and Canada for another three years. Brunwick Acceptance Company (BAC), established in 2002 to help finance the dealer network, will now run through 2016.

The company provides Brunswick’s dealer network with floorplan financing for Brunswick boat brands and Mercury Marine engines, supporting more than 1,200 dealers.

“Our relationships with our dealers extend well beyond providing them with just great boats and engines,” said Dustan E McCoy, Brunswick chairman and CEO. “We believe that if our dealers prosper, so will we. BAC has a demonstrated ability to provide market-leading products and services as a stable and affordable source of financing.” 

“We are committed to providing their dealers with flexible financing and the best customer experience possible to help them succeed,” said Bruce Van Wagoner, president of CDF’s marine business.

Howard Shiebler, president of CDF Canada, said his division had renewed its agreement to be the strategic inventory finance provider for Brunswick boat dealers in Canada. “Over the years, we have developed great relationships with their dealer network, and we look forward to continuing to serve them at the highest level,” he added.
