We offer Work in Process Financing to US & CA Based Manufacturers and are one of the few Non-Bank lenders that offers WIP Funding.
What is WIP?
Work in process (WIP) is the part of the inventory that is currently being “worked on” and is yet in the production process. Work In Process is a stage in between the raw material and finished goods. WIP is no longer raw material because the material has undergone some processing in the production process. Work In Process is also not yet finished goods because more processing has to be done to the material to put into its saleable condition. Also, WIP includes the items that needs fabricating or waiting for further processing or in storage.
What is Work In Process Financing?
WIP Financing considers financing Work In Process if the client’s product is pre-sold to a credit approved customer. At WIP Funding, We are comfortable with the manufacturing process. In WIP Financing the client is not buying a finished product. Instead of buying various components and sending them to a manufacturer for assembly, the client assembles the product by own. In either case, we can buy the components for our client. Thus, the unfinished product can be leveraged for funding if the product is pre-sold to a creditworthy customer and business has a solid manufacturing process.
