Originally opened in 1995, Bay Meadows Family Golf Course in Traverse City has grown into one of the premier “family-friendly” golf experiences in Northern Michigan. The property boasts 9-hole regulation and 9-hole par-3 courses, indoor driving range, and expansive indoor and outdoor practice facilities with four PGA instructors and state-of-the-art electronic teaching aids.

But Bay Meadows Family Golf Course didn’t start out that way. When Michael Husby and his wife, Judy, bought the course from a local bank in 2014, the property had suffered under years of neglect. The playing conditions were poor, as was the course’s reputation in the community. The Husby’s had big plans for Bay Meadows, but they needed a strong financing partner to help make these plans a reality.

Bringing a Run-Down Course Back to Life

Before the Husbys bought the course, it had been owned by a bank for five years. The course had received very little attention, and revenue had plunged.

“When I purchased the course, it was in very poor condition,” says Michael Husby. “The buildings, turf, and the equipment was in shambles. I needed to change the image of the operation immediately.”

Husby knew he would need to purchase several additional pieces of turf equipment to get the course conditions back up to par. Fortunately, he knew just who to call: Tim and Joe at Team Financial. He had previously worked with Team Financial Group as far back as 2003, and had known Team Financial Group founder Tim Maczka since the 1980s, when both lived in Gaylord, MI.

After getting competitive, flexible financing from Team Financial Group and purchasing five new pieces of turf equipment, course conditions significantly improved—and golfers started returning. More turf equipment purchases and course remodeling followed a few years later to keep the momentum going. But Husby had bigger plans.

Building a Nationally Recognized Golf Facility for All Ages

In just a few years, Bay Meadows Family Golf Course was transformed from a deteriorating property with declining revenue into a popular course known for its excellent service, clean conditions, and friendly atmosphere.

In 2017, the course took another step toward regional and even national recognition with the addition of the Bay Meadows Learning Center. This state-of-the-art, indoor practice facility is staffed by four Professional Golf Association teaching professionals and includes video swing analysis, launch monitors, radar tracking, and other high-tech teaching equipment. The facility also includes four putting greens, practice bunkers, a 90-yard practice hole, and driving range.

“When I built the indoor facility, it was a gamble that required sophisticated, expensive equipment to be successful and produce the revenue required,” Husby says. “Again, Team Financial was there.”

The expansion was so successful, in fact, that it was featured in a 2019 special on the Golf Channel.

A Winning Partnership with Team Financial Group

Bay Meadows Family Golf Course has become a regional destination for all ages and ability levels. It’s a place where families can play together, beginners can learn the game, and serious golfers can hone their skills. The course and learning center have partnered with an array of junior and high school golf programs, helping to grow the game for the next generation.

“The success can be attributed to the tireless work from my wife & I, as well as four key employees.  But we may have never reached our goals without the help of Team Financial.  They trusted our plan and provided us excellent financial counsel, which has been invaluable as we grew” says Husby.

“The staff at Team is superb. The office personnel know me when I call or visit their headquarters, even though my business is 150 miles away. But most importantly, when Team Financial promises to get the job done, it is written in stone. Never have I waited for paperwork, money transfers, invoices, or documents when the loan is paid in full.”

What is Husby’s advice to other individuals and companies looking for financing help to make their own dreams a reality?

“If you want to establish a long-term relationship with a lender that will quickly respond to your needs, then you found it in Team Financial,” Husby says. “My experience with banks is they will always lend you capital, if you can prove you don’t need it. I work with a team that wants me to succeed as much as I do.”

Since being founded by a small team of data and communications professionals in 2003, Compass Communications Group has quickly grown into a premier communications solutions provider for senior living communities in Michigan and throughout the Great Lakes region.

In addition to wireless nurse call systems, Compass Communications Group provides access control, wander management, fall management, phone systems, CC camera systems, and other tools to help senior living and skilled nursing communities support the health and safety of their residents.

Finding the Right Partner a Challenge for Compass Communications Group

Skilled nursing facilities work hard to make their communities not only safe for residents, but also as comfortable and “home-like” as possible. But even after taking advantage of government incentive programs, upgrading technology can still represent a major capital expense and require additional financing.

During Compass Communications Group’s first few years in business, finding the right financing partner to help their clients purchase nursing call systems and other key tools was a major challenge.

“We tried a couple financing companies and it was a disaster,” says Robin Rosier, founding member and sales/account manager at Compass Communications Group. “Either I had to handle all the communication and financial paperwork with the client and do more work for little or no compensation, or the lender dropped the ball and I had to make excuses and chase folks down on both sides of the transaction.”

The final straw for one vendor, according to Rosier, was when the president at a major company called her to say that, if he didn’t know her personally, he’d never consider doing business with Compass again due to the way he was treated by the financing company representative.

Fortunately, things got a lot smoother once Team Financial Group entered the picture.

Team Financial Group Provides Easy and Painless Financing for Compass’ Clients

From the beginning, Compass Communications Group has believed in following the golden rule and approaching each installation as if they were working to keep their own family members safe.

That philosophy has helped Compass Communications Group build long-term, trusting relationships with their clients. And it’s why they demand the same level of dedication and integrity from their key business partners.

“Team Financial Group is a stellar finance partner,” Rosier says. “I can confidently turn over my clients to Joe (Smaby, Team Financial Group’s Vice President of Sales), knowing that he will handle everything professionally and treat my clients the way I would treat them.”

According to Rosier, multiple Compass Communications Group clients have commented about how smooth the approval process is with Team Financial Group.

More than 15 years later, the partnership between the two companies is still going strong. Team Financial Group has attended trade shows with Compass Communications Group over the years, and both companies keep each other in mind when networking and business opportunities arise that might benefit the other (or the other’s clients).

“We feel like Team Financial Group is part of our team,” Rosier says. “We would never consider working with anyone else.”

Twin brothers Nathan and Norman Miller put their dreams on the line in 1998 when they built a new workshop and entered the firewood industry with the creation of DYNA Products.

The Millers centered DYNA Products around their strong faith, building a robust company culture dedicated to providing quality products at a fair price and backed by superior customer support. Thanks to that approach, DYNA Products is now one of the top manufacturers of world-class firewood processing equipment, with a 37,000-square-foot facility located in Millington, Michigan.

More recently, DYNA Products has enjoyed significant growth in both the manufacturing sector and the rental market. As a result, they needed additional equipment that required significant capital. That’s when they turned to Team Financial Group.

Team Financial Group Helps DYNA Products With Crucial Funding

The seasonal nature of DYNA Products’ business, along with complexities related to depreciation and equipment life cycles, often made it difficult for them to work with a bank. They wanted to find a partner who would understand their strategy and direction, and then could provide tailored terms to help maintain their growth.

After listening carefully to DYNA Products’ needs, Team Financial Group was able to provide fast, flexible financing that helped the company buy updated manufacturing and expand its rental fleet.

“We appreciate the values that Team Financial Group adhere to and the company’s emphasis on personal relationships,” DYNA Products CEO Nathan Miller says. “Ultimately, Team Financial Group understood our needs and core business strategy and believed in us. They offered competitive rates and service that blew the banks out of the water.”

“I would advise other companies to take a look at Team Financial Group and let them have a chance to prove their value,” Nathan says.

Founded in 2012, Darby Metal Treating, Inc. is a manufacturing company based in Plainwell, Michigan. It provides heat treatments for the aerospace, automotive, and medical industries. Darby Metal Treating’s goal is to exceed customer expectations with the quality and overall value of the services provided.

No matter the size of the company, the Darby Metal Treating team strives to treat all its customers like family and give them on-time delivery with the best service possible.

Team Financial Group Financing Helps Boost Year-Over-Year Growth

Darby Metal Treating’s general manager, Tom Darby, first worked with Team Financial Group on equipment financing when he was president of a sister company named TMD Machining, Inc. A couple years later, Tom founded Darby Metal Treating with his daughter, Adrien, and turned to Team Financial Group to help fill up their facility with heat-treating equipment.

As a new company, Tom and Adrien thought that initial financing would be challenging, but Team Financial Group proved to be flexible, creative, and easy to work with, just as they were with the more seasoned TMD Machining.

The heat-treating company had ambitious goals, and it needed to invest in advanced equipment and technology to succeed. With help from Team Financial Group, Darby Metal Treating could buy much-needed equipment and help its business expand.

“My father’s experience with Tim and Joe at Team Financial Group was always positive, so it made sense to reach out to them for our start-up company, Darby Metal. Despite the limited sales volume at the time, Team Financial trusted our plan and provided the financing to acquire the critical equipment needed to grow our capacity,” Adrien says. “They are extremely responsive and approach our business as if they are a team member. Their financial expertise and passion to help their clients succeed clearly showed with how they have serviced both our companies. They provide more than just financing to us. We really value their insights and opinions related to the economy and our company’s long-term growth objectives.”

Team Financial Group took the time to learn more about the challenges and opportunities faced by Darby Metal Treating. Both Tom and Adrien Darby annually meet with Team Financial Group to discuss long-term goals, year-over-year growth, and capital expenditure budgeting.

Adrien knows that Team Financial Group is a valued partner who cares about her company’s success.

“You won’t be disappointed if you work with Team Financial,” Adrien says. “They are fast, friendly, knowledgeable, and take the time to really understand your business.”

Hudsonville, Michigan-based Straight Edge Customs offers residential, multifamily, and commercial customers a variety of carpentry services, including rough and finish carpentry, custom cabinetry, and decks. Owner Geoff Farrier works to ensure that his deep industry knowledge and positive attitude win over homeowners and contractors. He’s also committed to helping young people find quality careers in the professional carpentry industry.

Team Financial Group Helped Straight Edge Customs Build a Strong Financial Framework

Like many startups, Straight Edge Customs needed capital to grow. Without vehicles and heavy equipment for large scale, on-site carpentry jobs, the company’s future was dire. But even with a strong business model, banks and other traditional lenders weren’t willing to work with them.

Thankfully, Geoff knew precisely where to turn to make sure his new startup thrived. While working with a different company, Geoff had partnered with Team Financial Group.

“Team Financial Group did not look at Straight Edge as ‘just numbers,’” Geoff says. “They get to know your business and see what you need. Relationships matter to them, and it shows. We can call, and it’s never a worry. If [they] can help you, they will.”

More than five years later, he doesn’t regret his decision. When the company needs to update its equipment, it still turns to Team Financial Group for fast, flexible options.

“Team Financial Group was genuinely there to help then,” Geoff says, “and they’ve supported my financial needs ever since.”

Integrated Technology LLC (ITg) takes a customer-centered, fresh approach to the office automation business. Founded in 2018, the company offers a one-stop business solution for office supplies, document management, VoIP, digital marketing, and managed network services. Today, its goal remains the same: to optimize customer workflows and improve efficiency and effectiveness while substantially improving their customers’ bottom line.

Why Integrated Technology Partnered With Team Financial Group

Prior to ITg’s partnership with Team Financial Group, the company couldn’t find a lender interested in offering financing to potential technology customers, according to Integrated Technology’s VP/CSO Sergio Castro. ITg called several major lenders, but none were willing to partner and create a monthly payment option for a small technology company. These companies operate in an industry where equipment quickly becomes obsolete, so having a lender that can offer a variety of monthly payment acquisition options is essential for their sustained success.

“Two years ago, we went to a number of financial institutions to develop a business relationship, but they didn’t want anything to do with a start-up,” says Sergio. “When we met Team Financial Group, their only concern was to help us grow our business. Our partnership has been solely based on trust and loyalty ever since.”

Team Financial Group has also helped Integrated Technology meet their production inventory needs when major orders arise, which empowers them to scale with flexibility.

“In order to keep our partners happy and successful, we need to be able to provide services and solutions at a moment’s notice. Thanks to partnering with Team Financial Group, we’re able to meet that sort of demand in near real-time,” notes Sergio.

The company’s reasons for staying with Team Financial Group are equally clear.

“You can either be just another number at the top of the invoice with some of these financing groups or you can have a financial partner that gives you exceptional one-to-one personal service as you scale and grow. We’re happy to have a partner that is always willing to think outside of the box and deliver when called upon.”

Hybrid Machining is a Holland, Michigan-based manufacturing company founded by Jeff Robinson that handles a wide range of machining jobs, from simple to highly complex. The company combines traditional machining skills with three different 3D-printing technologies to take on any challenge that customers need help with.

Even though the technologies that Hybrid Machining uses are cutting-edge, the company’s principles are timeless. The team at Hybrid Machining focuses on doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. They strive to serve customers, help each other, and learn something new every day.

Traditional Financing Proves Challenging, but Team Financial Group Comes Through

Hybrid Machining Partner Tim DuMez knows from experience that traditional financing can be difficult to obtain for new companies. When Hybrid Machining was founded, Tim kept hearing the same story from banks: lending officers wouldn’t consider the company for commercial financing until it had been in business for three years. But without initial capital, many capital-intensive companies can’t even make it to the three-year mark. The concerns for Hybrid Machining were significant.

Fortunately, Tim was referred to Team Financial Group, and our financing experts quickly found a solution that worked for Hybrid Machining. With Team Financial Group’s help, Hybrid Machining was able to acquire two critical pieces of equipment.

“Without Team Financial Group’s help, we would likely have been stuck,” Tim says.

Not only did Team Financial Group get the job done, but they applied a holistic approach that left the team at Hybrid Machining impressed. Rather than focusing solely on the company’s financials, Team Financial Group also wanted to know about Hybrid Machining’s goals, values, and impact on the community.

“Absolutely have a discussion with Team Financial Group [about your financing options],” Tim says. “They are good people who will take the time to listen and understand a company’s needs.”

KM Industrial Machinery has been selling quality machine tools since 1942. The company provides high-tech, state-of-the-art equipment for the molding, stamping, and machining industries.

A third-generation family business based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, KM Industrial Machinery decided to partner with Team Financial Group as a vendor to offer reliable, flexible financing options to their customers. KM Industrial Vice President Patrick W. Byers dealt with other lenders before Team Financial Group, and he says the difference was apparent from the first moment of the partnership.

“They’re great people to work with,” Patrick says of the Team Financial Group staff. “You don’t have to go to a committee for approval. They’re easy, friendly, trustworthy people, and they fund our customers when the big guys struggle to.”

KM Industrial’s partnership with Team Financial Group has lasted nearly 10 years as of today and is still going strong. Team Financial Group’s single-source funding has consistently helped close deals, Patrick says, and customer feedback has been outstanding throughout. He reports that KM Industrial’s  customers say Team Financial Group is easy to work with and gets the job done.

“Customers like the fact that everything is based right here in West Michigan, and you talk with the people who make the decisions. Team Financial Group gets our customers approved promptly when others make them jump through hoop after hoop.”

JDE Concrete is a concrete services company that has served businesses and residential customers in West Michigan (and beyond) since 1997. The company specializes in commercial, residential, and agricultural concrete projects, including pump, flatwork, stamped concrete, and footings.

Joel Eerdmans, the owner of JDE concrete, founded the company 23 years ago on the principles of faith, hard work, discipline, and respect. Since then, the business has grown enormously, providing an essential service along with a work ethic and commitment to quality that the community has come to rely on and trust.

JDE Concrete Finds True Partnership With Team Financial Group

Like many service companies, JDE Concrete needs a large fleet of equipment, tools, and vehicles to keep their business running, including large pump trucks and cranes. The company needed access to financing options so they could continue to grow, stay competitive, and maintain their high standards of service and integrity. However, according to owner Joel Eerdmans, obtaining financing for these large pieces of equipment can be tricky, and when funds don’t come through, it can create challenges.

Seeking alternative, creative financing solutions, JDE Concrete found Team Financial Group and chose to form a partnership based on the two companies’ shared values of faith and hard work. Joel Eerdmans says that since the first financing transaction over 10 years ago, Team Financial Group has never wavered in their commitment to helping his company grow.

“Initially, they provided funding and sound advice when we bought our Greenville operation, which really was key to the growth of JDE,” Joel says. “After that, Team Financial Group was creative in helping us acquire our current building by providing a quick and easy sale-leaseback to buy the property, which allowed me to move fast and also saved us significant closing costs and headaches.”

What makes the partnership invaluable, Joel says, is Team Financial Group’s guidance during big decisions, especially regarding strategic growth opportunities. Not only that, but Joel says he appreciates the way Team Financial Group makes every financing transaction fast, flexible, and efficient.
