GE Capital UK
It was the 10th April 2015 when GE Capital UK made the surprise decision to exit the leasing and equipment finance market to focus on their industrial company. What was one of the UK’s largest leasing companies was shut down and sold off, a picture that was replicated throughout the world.
In the UK, today the GE Capital website just states the following: “GE Capital in the UK has been resized and refocused to directly support the GE industrial businesses.”
When you click “find out more” it takes you to a web page on their US site. Incredible for what was such a massive equipment leasing company in the UK at one time.
Working with GE Capital in the UK
Our previous company, Wyse Leasing, worked with GE Capital back in the 1990’s. Based out of Bristol, they entered the UK market by acquiring the likes of Pallas, Heller Dana Commercial and Woodchester Leasing. Their strategy was always to be in the top three companies in any market they operated in. They had a sizeable business and run the Cannon and Apple lease programs to name a few.
The first thing we heard about GE Capital shutting down in the UK was when the recruitment agents called us saying 180 people had been made redundant. Hopefully, they are all now gainfully employed.
