Siemens Financial Services (SFS) is a specialist provider in the finance market for buses & coaches. We have been able to build a strong position in the market by drawing on our sector experience both within our financial services business, and through working closely with Siemens as a manufacturer of both hybrid and electric drive systems for buses.
As a specialist financier in the sector, we combine strong market expertise and expert technology backgrounds. We are committed to the transportation market and, through that focus, have built up an in-depth understanding of operators, trends, technology and contractual requirements. Our comprehensive sector knowledge enables us to build flexible, tailored financing plans for PCV operators to suit each client’s needs.
We strive to develop close, long-term relationships with every customer in order to fully understand their requirements and offer a first class service. As a result, more insightful assessments can be made about, for example, an operator’s business plan; technology update cycles; trends in contractual terms; likely return on investment and many other key aspects.
The Siemens Group is strongly committed to offering innovative and environmentally friendly solutions, and in recent years SFS has invested millions supporting bus operators in ultra-low-emission vehicles (ULEV) acquisitions. Low carbon, as well as hybrid and electric buses, have been funded using customized hire purchase and operating lease finance solutions.
