In an effort to provide contractors with more credit options, the American Subcontractors Association (ASA), Alexandria, Va., and Firstcorp, Portland, Ore., have joined to develop and market a special equipment financing program for ASA members. The program will allow members to apply for credit online, calculate payments, and obtain credit lines for immediate or future purchases of equipment from vendors or suppliers of their choice.

“By working together, we’ll ensure that members who seek equipment financing will have a dedicated resource for financing virtually any type of equipment, whether it be computers, bid estimating or accounting software, or any other type of equipment,” said Russ Munson, Firstcorp managing director.

The online credit application service will be available on the subcontractor association’s Web site at
