FORT COLLINS, COLO. – Tandem Finance announces the recent formation of Tandem Transportation Finance. The new team is led by industry veteran and Tandem General Sales Manager of Transportation and Construction, Mike Bardwell. He and the company have rostered industry veterans: Greg Clemens, Warren Story, Dallas Bardwell, Robert Fischer and Carl Meinhardt to launch them into the national transportation marketplace.

Bardwell says, "our focus is to reach out and support the established commercial transportation dealers in the lower 48 states while providing consistent service, deep credit and risk-adjusted pricing. We're building a strong performing portfolio of high-quality transportation equipment assets."

Tandem is prepared to deliver competitive credit approvals from "A" to "Startup" credit profiles. A dedicated Vendor Service Team designed to support the commercial trucking dealership's unique needs has been established. Bardwell closes by stating, "With our appetite for a wide range of commercial credit profiles in vocational, medium-duty and select Class-8 applications, Tandem Transportation Finance will serve a wide cross-section of the needs that are not fully served in today's marketplace."

Tandem Finance Inc. provides equipment financing to SMBs in the U.S. through the equipment vendor channel. Tandem Finance is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chesswood Group Limited. Chesswood Group Limited, publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX: CHW), is a financial services company operating in the specialty finance industry in North America.

FORT COLLINS, COLO. – Tandem Finance is one of the industry’s fastest-growing small-ticket, independent, equipment finance and lease companies. Powered by the efforts of a great team and its valued vendor partners, Tandem continued its rapid national expansion in 2020 despite the challenges introduced by COVID in the springtime. The company overcame a challenging year by growing a remarkable 210% over the prior year.

Tandem President, Michael Sheehan stated, “While a great deal of resources and energy went to providing the necessary support to our customers, significant attention was also directed to our continued quest to expand and support our vendor program partners across a wide range of strategic vertical markets. I’m confident it’s that level of engagement and mutual support that has delivered results at this elevated level.”

Last year Tandem launched a Tandem Transportation Finance Team. Led by industry veteran Mike Bardwell, the new team has identified marketplace opportunities, is engaging new accounts and is already delivering a solid contribution to Tandem’s journey.

Additionally, Sheehan has increased personnel in business development, sales and vendor services. He recapped by saying, “We look forward to 2021 and the future as Tandem Finance grows and expands its targeted vertical markets and national sales organization. We are always looking to add quality sales team members, vertical market specialists and possibly small teams of producers.”

Section 179 at a Glance

Made available by Section179.org

Here’s how IRS Section 179 works:

In years past, when your business bought qualifying equipment, it typically wrote it off a little at a time through depreciation. In other words, if your company spends $50,000 on a machine, it gets to write off (say) $10,000 a year for five years (these numbers are only meant to give you an example).
