HITACHI Construction Machinery (Europe) NV (HCME) have announced a strategic partnership with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions for the provision of dealer financing solutions for their construction machinery.
Under the agreement, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions will be the preferred financial solutions provider for HCME’s dealer network across multiple European countries. HCME dealers will be able to offer customers access to a range of flexible financing options under the Zaxis Finance brand, paving the way for a seamless, hassle-free buyer experience.
