Slade Construction

“Due to the nature of Slade’s business, we may be engaged in multiple short-term projects in multiple states. With a TruFund mobilization loan, I was able to employ 24 contractors and complete three projects without worrying about meeting payroll and other expenses before the projects were complete. TruFund financing enabled me to complete the projects on time, within schedule, and budget.”
