Bringing Advantageous Equipment Finance Solutions to our clients with Integrity, Depth of Knowledge and Speed.
A premier finance company, KLC Financial, Inc. was founded in 1987. Headquartered in Minnetonka, MN, we lease and finance capital equipment and assets for businesses nationwide. KLC Financial is built on strong relationships with our customers, vendors and bank partners. Our mission is to bring advantageous equipment finance solutions to our clients with integrity, depth of knowledge and speed. This is achieved through our ongoing vision to bring expertly constructed flexible financing solutions that accurately meet the needs of business owners. We believe this is accomplished through valuable advice, creativity and the tenacity to get to “yes”.

This philosophy is led by co-owners, Marc Keepman, CEO/Chairman and Spencer Thomas, President, along with 15 other expert staff that bring over 100 years of experience to the business. Mr. Keepman has over four decades of experience in the leasing and finance industry. He has worked with hundreds of banks and financial institutions, structuring transactions and funding over $1.2B. Mr. Thomas has had a successful, extensive career in financial services, with the past 18 years in the equipment leasing and financing industry. He has held leadership positions in new business development, sales and portfolio management and corporate administration.
Since the company’s inception, KLC has emerged as a market leader by providing leasing and financing solutions valued from $3,000 to over $3,000,000; solutions that enable companies of all kinds to acquire the equipment, software and other business assets they need to grow. From “mom and pop” shops to Fortune 500 businesses, KLC is proud to now lease or finance upwards of $35 million annually.
As a truly independent financing company, KLC’s specialty is flexible, creative, custom solutions that support businesses that don’t easily fit the typical bank or finance company models. Because we are not beholden to outside shareholders, we can cover all facets of lease financing without having to specialize in any one industry or “credit mold.”
KLC Financial has been chosen as a strategic partner by many established equipment dealers, banks and other leasing companies to provide equipment financing programs on their behalf, because of our vast knowledge, experience and resources. Our customers range from Fortune 500 companies down to lower middle market businesses and “mom & pop” ventures. These relationships have translated into $35 million in lease transactions annually. We have found the market today to be growing, and demanding on leasing companies. Leasing companies today must structure sophisticated lease financing plans in simple terms to get their share of business.
At KLC Financial, we have found this to be our strength in a world of consolidation where the giants in the industry tend to have no time for customer service. KLC Financial’s path has been chosen cautiously, as we prefer to build volume profitably, while establishing solid, long term relationships with our customers, investing partners and referral sources.
