Financier offers program for factory-direct sellers

As the industry's distribution and sales models continue to evolve, Dealer Financial Services Group is adapting its financing programs.

DFSG, a division of Newcoast Financial Services, will make available to manufacturers that sell factory-direct to consumers the same retail finance program offered to its dealers.

"[The program] gives manufacturers a retail outlet and all the resources that go along with it," said Vernon Blanc, director of dealer financial services.

Blanc said DFSG has worked with Pursuit, Donzi and Pro-Line on factory-direct financing in the past and is now looking to expand its nationwide financing program.
