Providing the Best Client Experience for Manufacturers

Our service model is designed to make the entire leasing process simple and easy – so you can keep your focus on running and growing your business.



Two Decades of Loyalty

At First American, we are committed to doing whatever it takes to earn your loyalty. While other lenders may come and go, we have never wavered in our commitment to serving the unique equipment financing needs of our manufacturing clients.

Technology + Equipment Financing

We know technology. We embrace it. We utilize it. And we most assuredly finance it. While some lenders may be uncomfortable financing soft costs, we welcome it.

Clear + Straightforward

As a First American client, you will always receive clear, unambiguous lease documents, prompt responses to inquiries, full disclosure surrounding all costs upfront, no fees of any kind, and the friendliest documentation in the industry.

Service with Purpose

We provide you with a dedicated Project Manager who works with you to understand your needs and preferences as he or she provides you with personal, direct service. Your Project Manager takes personal ownership in driving growth and success for your business.

The Strength of City National Bank

When you work with First American, you are working with a direct lender, not a broker. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of City National Bank, a highly-respected business bank with more than $50 billion in assets and a long track record of strength and stability.

Tailored Finance Transactions

Need a custom solution for your unique needs? We understand manufacturing. Your finance specialist will collaborate with you to create an on-target solution to help you grow your business.

Innovative Asset Management

Whether you want to know the status of an individual piece of leased equipment or need to review your entire lease portfolio, you will be able to quickly and easily retrieve all the information you need, when and how you need it — at your desk or on the fly via your smart phone or tablet.


Fast track your transactions with the secure DocuSignTM e-signature platform that allows you to execute lease documents anywhere, anytime.

Transparency Through Technology

Our mission is to earn your business — the right way. We build trust through honest and transparent two-way communication — which is conveniently facilitated through our unparalleled technology.
