Advance Acceptance equipment finance is located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Advance Acceptance serves customers nationally, and is a bank affiliated lender.
Advance Acceptance was founded in 1972, as an in-house financing division of Advance Machine Company (now Nilfisk-Advance), in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Advance Acceptance was purchased and held privately in 1974. We continued to serve as a national lease and finance company, operating as an independent third-party lender until the late 1990s.
In 2002, Advance Acceptance became a division of First Western Bank & Trust of Minot, North Dakota. This has provided us the ability to offer attractive financing rates and full-service equipment financing solutions for both our vendor partners and end-customers. We’ve continued to grow, beating internal goals and records every year since 2012.
First Western Bank & Trust is family owned and has been serving the community of Minot, North Dakota since 1964 and was founded by Jack Hoeven. First Western Bank & Trust is a full service financial center providing traditional banking products (deposit accounts and loans) as well as trust services, all lines of insurance, investments, leasing, and much more.
