Founded in 1998, BB&T Commercial Equipment Capital (BB&T CEC) is a specialized team of equipment finance professionals who serves over 24K client accounts annually. The origins can be traced back to Patriot Leasing, which later became Susquehanna Commercial Finance after being acquired by Susquehanna Bank. In 2015, BB&T Corporation purchased the company which operates as an independent subsidiary. BB&T CEC provides financing for commercial equipment and software nationally for businesses, non-profits and municipalities. We like to think of ourselves as generalists although the sales team has specialties in Dealer/Manufacturer, Industrial Equipment and Transportation. Our headquarters is located in Malvern, PA although we originate loans and leases nationwide.
