Acquis has announced that it is partnering with independent French long-term equipment finance specialist OCCARENT, to provide equipment protection insurance for their portfolio.

As well as generating valuable revenue for OCCARENT, Acquis Supra will deliver excellent customer service whilst assisting the business to meet their strategy of lowering the average ticket cost, as more asset types and sizes become available to them.

The firm is active across France and specialises in leasing hard assets, with construction and industrial assets representing over 80% of their portfolio.

James Rudolf (pictured above), CCO of Acquis commented: “Despite current economic headwinds, Europe’s leasing market is going from strength to strength, and today’s announcement epitomises that. This partnership is exciting on many fronts – it delivers efficiency, cost savings and is a prime example of two complementary firms working in partnership to deliver outstanding customer service.”

Yann Lequellec, CEO at OCCARENT added: “The partnership with Acquis represents a new chapter for our firm – one of lower risk and efficiency. Our business model is slightly different to other leasing firms, which has allowed us to grow yet retain strong equity levels. Acquis Supra will enable us to deliver new levels of customer service, while also improving profitability and letting our sales reps do what they do best – find solutions for our customers.”
