Amur: ‘We’re Big on Small’: Equipment finance firm celebrates 25 years in Grand Island | Grand Island Local News

Many of Amur’s customers, he said, are focused on the day-to-day operations of their business.

“We have to be creative in our solutions and be available any time of the day to respond to them and get them the financing to help them acquire the necessary equipment to build their business, hire more people and grow the economy on the national level,” Wainwright said.

Amur Equipment Finance delivers efficient and flexible finance solutions to better serve business owners, manufacturers, distributors, importers or dealers.

The company announced record growth in the fourth quarter of 2020 with an increase of 27%, year over year, and a 34% year-over-year increase in application volume, as it set new records for monthly and quarterly origination and application volume during the fourth quarter overall.

That growth has allowed Amur to increase its employee headcount by more than 50% since March 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Wainwright said they have opened two new offices in Lincoln and Rapid City, S.D.

From its origins in Grand Island, Amur now has three offices in Nebraska and has an enlarged presence within its Great Plains regional footprint.

Wainwright said Amur’s growth is a result of its focus on helping small businesses and continuing to develop a “world class company culture” with their employees’ dedication to helping their customers.
