Oct. 14, 2013
Businesses and municipalities to benefit from innovative financing solutions

Dow Water & Process Solutions (DW&PS), together with De Lage Landen Financial Services (DLL), announced the industry’s first reverse osmosis (RO) element leasing program for Filmtec elements. Through this collaborative offering, businesses and municipalities in North America can benefit from innovative financing to ease element acquisition and affordability and to better manage cash flow.

The new program, which is also available for purchases made via DW&PS channel partner OEMs, is designed to give end-users flexibility, whether their acquisitions are planned or not. Additionally, the leasing program will give end-users an opportunity to consistently use the latest DW&PS RO technology while continually staying within warranty term coverage.

“Our partnership with DLL will increase the availability of Filmtec RO elements to our customers, who want to capitalize on the operational benefits of our latest technology at a faster pace,” said Snehal Desai, global business director for Dow Water & Process Solutions. “Financing allows businesses to acquire a significant asset without making a large capital expenditure, so our industry-first leasing program will help customers realize the demineralizing and desalination benefits of the Filmtec RO elements more efficiently, and more affordably.”

Filmtec RO elements are used for demineralizing brackish water or desalinating seawater for a variety of industries and applications, including industrial water treatment, power generation, food and beverage processing, municipal desalination and water reuse, and home drinking water devices.

Many American companies already recognize the value of financing by leveraging it to acquire equipment critical to running their businesses and growing their revenue. Leasing is the fastest growing and largest external source of capital investment in the U.S. and throughout the world.
