ILGP Borrower Success Story: Tomco-Harwel Industries

Tomco-Harwel Industries began as a small chemical supplier in 1983.

Tomco-Harwel Industries Inc. (THI) expanded its business by purchasing Summit Industries.

The acquisition of Summit was an opportunity for growth, but the transition also caused significant financial challenges. In 2008, THI began working on a refinance through the Indian Loan Guarantee and Insurance Program (ILGP) program. As a result, THI was able to gain a larger line of credit, a better rate and term, and manageable payments without fees.
