Christie has entered into an agreement with US Express Leasing (USXL) to offer financing solutions and services to Christie's U.S. dealers and customers, effective immediately.

Christie's new finance program offers a broad range of new financing services for first-time and existing customers, including but not limited to structured payment programs, lease-to-own plans, low cost buyout options, and six-month deferred payment plans. Christie's financing program is the easiest, most flexible and affordable program available on the market and applies to Christie's entire product offerings of newest single-chip and three-chip DLP projection systems as well as LCD projectors and flat panel LCDs.

"We are excited to be working with USXL to offer all our dealers and partners totally unique and individual finance options that help them grow their business with less risk and financial investment," noted Gary Fuller, vice-president of Christie's Business Products division.

Christie's rental/stagers and Business Products dealers will work closely with their existing Christie sales manager to determine the most appropriate projection solution for their specific project without being limited by the financial aspect. With the addition of USXL's financing purchase options, the entire process is a one-stop shop. The agreement calls for USXL to administer the credit application, documentation and purchase order directly with Christie's dealers and customers.

"When the opportunity to work with Christie's network of esteemed rental/stagers and dealers arose, USXL immediately jumped at the chance to offer its dedicated, personalized financial services. We look forward to helping Christie make its highly specialized products more attractive to customers who need impeccable image quality and the highest performance," remarked Jim McGrane, USXL CEO.

"As the pro AV industry continues to grow at an astounding rate, getting the latest and best projection technologies into the hands of our customers who stand to benefit the most is now even easier and affordable. The financial barriers have come down, opening a floodgate of new business," added Fuller.
