SEAFOOD

Drowning in unpaid invoices? you need better cash flow. If you can’t keep your ice machines running, your crews onboard and your processing up to code, your whole company is dead in the water. let First Financial Factoring show you how our 50 years of seafood industry experience can give you a dependable cash flow even when your clients are a little slow to pay.

You’ve got to get quality product to market faster and fresher than most.
if you can’t deliver on time, you’ve suddenly got no product at all. but with clients who take an average of 40 days to pay their invoices (sometimes much longer), you can quickly find yourself in a tight spot. emergency ship and boat repairs, packaging and cleaning supplies, permits, navigation equipment payments, maintenance, taxes, licensing and crew paydays can’t wait for checks that may or may not be in the mail.
neither can you.
that’s why you need a seafood industry insider like first financial factoring to give your company the flexibility and stability that comes from a steady, predictable cash flow. are you a new startup? a one or two man operation? or a multi-national corporation? for five decades, we’ve delivered for companies like yours. independent fishing companies, importers and exporters, processing factories, fish farms, wholesalers, retailers, distributors, and seafood specialty companies of every sort have all managed their accounts receivable through first financial factoring—with outstanding results.
whether you run one boat, a fleet of import ships, a local fish market or an international distribution network, we get you paid on delivery every single time. imagine having your money within hours. never again will you have to wonder how you’ll fund your next shipment. plus, you’ll immediately have the improved credit and in-hand resources to grow and improve your equipment, your services, and your customer satisfaction.
it’s so easy to get started. you can get funded in 3 to 5 business days. that’s instant cash flow in under a week. remember the last time you waited over 45 days for a single invoice to get paid?
