Specialized service provider for structured export finance transactions

Ferrostaal Equipment Solutions GmbH (FES) is operating as technology-independent general exporter and consolidator / facilitator / aggregator for our customers, banks and equipment manufacturers. FES being part of the Ferrostaal Trading GmbH has a global presence with a strong regional footprint. Ferrostaal Trading GmbH has subsidiaries and key agents in more than 20 countries all over the globe, e.g. USA, Chile, UAE, Russia and China.

Export Finance Services of Ferrostaal Equipment Solutions focus on providing optimized short-term and long-term financing structures based on Export Credit Agency (ECA) and / or Private Risk Insurance (PRI) coverage. This includes:

  • to facilitate, coordinate, consolidate the equipment supplies from various origins
  • to maximize  the equipment and machinery supplies eligible for ECA covered financing
  • to handle the respective ECA application process with all leading ECAs around the globe, such as US-Exim, Euler Hermes and all European ECAs, Sinosure, NEXI, K-Sure et al.
  • to introduce leading international banks supporting the project

By combining several purchase contracts from different suppliers and even different countries into one sales contract the customer can boost (alternative leverage??) the amount eligible for ECA financing and thus can enjoy one loan agreement at more attractive financing conditions and longer repayment periods compared to a local commercial loan.

Our ECA covered financing solutions offer various advantages for:

  • the IMPORTER by leveraging/maximizing the ECA eligible amount and enjoying attractive financing conditions
  • the BANK  by enabling it to finance the entire equipment package which is covered by the ECA for their customers worldwide
  • the equipment MANUFACTURER by not only selling the equipment but also providing the financing solution via FES

We do not interfere with the technical procurement process between the involved parties, i.e. the importer and the manufacturer. However, beside our know-how in export finance we maintain technical competences in machinery trading in the fields of packaging, plastics, food processing, railways and recycling. If desired by the buyers, we are happy to offer our support as well.
