Stonebriar Commercial Finance closed a $55 million equipment lease facility with a private equity owned manufacturer of ceramic fiber products and specialty microfiber materials.
Through manufacturing plants worldwide, the lessee makes and markets engineered products serving a diverse customer base across broad global end markets.
