Short- and Medium-Term Financing

Hughes has an established relationship with the Export-Import Bank of the U.S. This  facilitates short-term and medium-term credit sales through loan guarantee and insurance programs. With small fees and low interest rates, customers avoid expensive bank fees for letters of credit or bank guarantees. The program can facilitate multiple suppliers of equipment under one loan. The application process can happen quickly to help the customer begin production sooner on-time and on-budget.

Open Credit

For qualifying customers, Hughes will be able to offer open terms on parts and equipment purchases. This may allow customers time to install and begin production of product before the payment is due. Costs for open credit terms will be very low to the customer.

Extended Financing

For qualifying customers, Hughes will help the customer facilitate financing through United States EXIM bank loan guarantees. The program will allow customers to purchase high quality, U.S.-built Hughes Equipment with very little money down, and pay for it over time.  Payments are due every 6 months. (two times annually)
