Asset Financing

Manufacturing Industry

As a manufacturing business, it’s vital you keep up with the latest technology if you want to stay competitive. But, with technology moving at an incredible pace, staying up to date can be costly and complex.

Because of this, asset finance has become a popular choice for technology leasing within the manufacturing industry. It allows businesses to acquire and update high costs assets, including fork lifts, AGVs, conveyors, cranes, and more.

Our manufacturing finance experts have an in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing industry, allowing them to find a financing solution that benefits your manufacturing business throughout the lifetime of your assets.

We invest time and effort into our asset financing products so that you can spend more time worrying about the things that truly matter to your business.

The CHG-MERIDIAN Approach to Asset Finance for Manufacturing

At CHG-MERIDIAN, we provide technology leasing asset financing solutions for a range of manufacturing assets, including forklift trucks, AGVs, robotic systems, cobots, and more.

As experts in the leasing of the latest manufacturing equipment, we can offer bespoke financial models that are designed around your specific volumes, helping to simplify cost control while reducing investment risk.


We are completely independent of manufacturers and banks, allowing us to provide our customers with individual, truly neutral advice. We support our customers in the manufacturing industry with an external view and can therefore offer a non-bias opinion.


In our quest for a carbon neutral world, we wanted to do more than just provide basic asset finance solutions. That’s why we’ve developed our own carbon-neutral asset financing solution, carbonZER0.

Innovation: tesma

Our online asset and contract management system, tesma gives you full transparency over assets including every single material handling vehicle and technology we have supplied, and the related service data. Whether you use it to monitor asset usage, servicing and maintenance records, or keep track of invoices, operating costs, and contract deadlines, it will provide 100% transparency throughout the financing term.

What is Manufacturing Finance?

Manufacturing finance is simply the financing of any equipment within a manufacturing business to help with cashflow and technology maintenance. Financing, rather than buying outright, also offers more flexibility in terms of the lifespan of IT and other manufacturing business assets.

Benefits of Technology Financing with CHG-MERIDIAN for the Manufacturing Sector

Lower total cost of ownership

The amount paid over the lifetime of your assets will typically be lower than the capital cost of the equipment with manufacturing finance.

Cost management

Spread the cost of your manufacturing assets over their useful economic life, rather than having to invest a significant amount of capital upfront.


With asset financing solutions, you can scale your equipment technology needs up or down as needed. This is particularly useful if your manufacturing business experiences cyclical revenue.

Lower maintenance costs and reduced downtime

With a regular refresh cycle in place, you can rest assured that your equipment is fully up to date and, as a result, is unlikely to require maintenance. This not only reduces repair costs, but also reduces the risk of downtime, which can be incredibly costly for businesses in the manufacturing industry.

Stay one step ahead

In the manufacturing industry, it’s vital that you stay up to date with the latest developments in technology. Manufacturing finance allows you to do that without the cost of constantly buying and replacing equipment.
