GE Money and Wood-Mizer Cut New Deal for Financing.

Wood-Mizer to Offer New Payment Option on Wood-Mizer Sawmills and Lastec Rotary Mower Purchases

KETTERING, Ohio -- GE Money and Wood-Mizer, a manufacturer of portable saw mills, today announced a multi-year agreement to provide revolving and installment financing through the Cutting Edge program, managed by GE Money's Sales Finance unit. The financing programs will be offered for Wood-Mizer's line of sawmills and Lastec articulating rotary mowers at more than 75 dealers nationwide. Both credit options provide a simple application and sales process with competitive rates and promotions and no prepayment penalties.

Wood-Mizer manufactures two categories of sawmill types, all of which are either manual or hydraulic. Manual sawmills are ideal tools for wood enthusiasts who cut lumber for enjoyment or for occasional special projects. Hydraulic mills are best for custom cutting and for successful wood cutting operations. One key element that sets Wood-Mizer apart is its patented monorail construction and cutting system, which is reliable and safe.

"We are excited to partner with Wood-Mizer in offering the Cutting Edge finance program to their customers and Lastec dealers," said Gary Slagle, vice president and general manager of the Outdoor Power Equipment industry for GE Money - Sales Finance. "Wood-Mizer & Lastec dealers will have a more simplified means to process applications, run reports and implement sales promotions while purchasers will have a more convenient and cost effective way to buy the sawmill or mowers they need."

"GE Money was a natural choice as a financial services provider, because of their reputation in the Outdoor Power Equipment industry," said Jeff Laskowski, CEO of Wood-Mizer. "Their financing products, technology and superior customer care also factored into our decision to offer the Cutting Edge program."
