STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), a global technology company that provides commerce solutions in the areas of ecommerce, shipping, mailing, data and financial services, today announced that Wheeler Financial from Pitney Bowes has closed a financing transaction with InterWest Paper, a full-service recycling facility for the Pro Recycling Group.
Located in Denver, Colorado, InterWest Paper has been managing recyclable collection across seven Western States for over forty years. Recent increased demand for its recycling services has led to pressure on its current logistics network. As a long-term Pitney Bowes client, InterWest turned to Wheeler Financial to quickly secure the capital for investment in critical use equipment. As a result, they are now well positioned to execute on an operational excellence and growth strategy.
“The service we deliver to our customers is what sets us apart, but it was becoming clear that we needed to make investments to maintain these high standards and deliver services across new routes. The right transport is mission-critical equipment for us. Wheeler Financial were responsive, supportive and flexible. The capital we have secured for investment is a springboard for growth,” said Lewis Peck, CEO, InterWest Paper.
“The health of America’s economy depends on our small businesses. For them to thrive, they need consistent access to capital from a diverse group of credit providers,” said Christopher Johnson, Senior Vice President and President, Pitney Bowes Financial Services. “Having a partner like Wheeler Financial that understands the needs of small businesses is now more critical than ever.
