For the past 43 years, Associated Leasing has been headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida. We are a diversified corporation providing total worldwide financial and travel services through our group of companies: Associated Leasing International Corp., Shane Enterprises Incorporated, Associated Leasing Expo International Corp., Associated Fuels, LLC, and a sophisticated "Travel and Meeting Planning Specialists" Division (IATAN Travel Agency).
Ronald and Robert Shane, twin brothers, formed our international leasing company in 1975. We initially financed all types of medical equipment in Florida, and then transitioned into any capital equipment, including printing, material handling, machinery, machine tools, yellow iron for construction, cranes, and bulldozers. Next, we moved into technology with computer hardware, office equipment, phone systems, and copiers. Our portfolio also expanded through the alternative industry, such as solar power, wind turbine, and waste to energy.
Over the years, Associated Leasing continued to diversify by offering acquisition and development loans and marine finance for ships, barges, and oil tankers. Additionally, we specialized in railcars and started Associated Fuels to provide petroleum, jet fuel, diesel, and oil to refineries or end users.
