Valor Underground is an underground construction startup founded just three months prior to its first agreement with NFS Leasing. After signing a two-year contract for a construction project, Valor partnered with NFS to fund the necessary equipment to successfully complete the engagement.
“Helping start-ups begin to write their story is part of what makes NFS Leasing so unique as a story lender,” Michael McClendon, vice president of Business Development at NFS Leasing, said. “Continuing to be a part of that story is even more powerful. We value becoming a long-term partner with start-up businesses like Valor and in helping them achieve continued success.”
“Starting a new business was certainly a complicated venture and one that can become very rewarding or unfruitful quickly,” Robert Opsenica, president of Valor Underground, said. “NFS Leasing has made sure that our story will end with the former being true. When we signed the two-year contract for a new project, we knew we needed to finance the equipment, but as a start-up, it was difficult to get anybody to listen. Thankfully NFS took the time to understand our business and help us find a way to get it done.”
