Putting the right tools into the right hands
DLL is a global financial solutions company. We are represented in four Nordic countries: Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. For us, financing concerns more than merely loaning money – it is a matter of solutions that create value and promote our partners' and end customers' growth and ambitions.
We aim to give companies new ideas on how we can use our assets together rather than own them. We enable you to use the equipment you need to contribute to the world in a meaningful manner, both financially and socially. By recognising what is truly important, we create success for you as partner and customer, as well as for ourselves. DLL supplies unique and integrated financing solutions that are adapted to the equipment's life cycle. We are shaping the future by making lasting progress – both financially and socially.
Our working model
At DLL we believe in genuine cooperation with customers and partners – the type of cooperation that is based on mutual trust rather than only on numbers. For us, cooperation involves recognising what is truly important. We see more than just a customer, and work hard to be able to offer innovative and flexible financing solutions that suit you.
