Serving the greater West Michigan area, JDE Concrete offers concrete construction for residential, commercial, and agricultural customers. JDE also takes on specialty projects, like waterproofing, epoxy flooring, and decorative and stamped concrete.
Since being founded in 1997, JDE has expanded their equipment and services to handle any concrete project from start to finish. Being able to manage a project of any size requires a large range of equipment, which is why JDE has invested heavily in its fleet of concrete pumps, cranes, and conveyor trucks.
To better meet their clients’ needs, grow their fleet, and expand their market share, JDE needed a trusted financing partner. Team Financial Group proved to be the right lender for the job, and we’ve formed a strong and durable partnership that’s lasted twelve years (and counting).
Team Financial Helps JDE Pave the Way to Success
Joel Eerdmans, owner and founder of JDE Concrete, started out by paving driveways. Since then, the operation has grown immensely, as JDE’s reputation for quality work and great service has spread. Strong growth requires capital, and Eerdmans says Team Financial has been essential in this regard by providing the support his company needed.
JDE first contacted Team Financial because they struggled to find a bank that would help finance their expansion. They were seeking a reliable financing partner, and Team Financial Group never wavered in their commitment to helping JDE grow.
“Initially, they provided funding and sound advice when we bought our Greenville operation, which really was key to the growth of JDE,” says Eerdmans. “Thereafter, Team 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 not only move fast but also saved us significant closing costs and headaches too.”
As a commercial lender, Team Financial Group doesn’t have to answer to the stringent requirements that govern traditional lenders like banks. We can find a solution that will help our client grow, while making sure their cash flow stays healthy.

More Than a Lender: A Trusted Advisor
While Eerdmans was initially looking for an independent lender with the flexibility and agility to meet JDE Concrete’s financing needs, he found that Team Financial provided even more. The business advice and guidance he received from Team Financial has been pivotal to navigating acquisitions.
“I most certainly view Team as if they are part of my unofficial Board of Directors,” comments Eerdmans. “They are experienced and sharp. More importantly, they care. I know they want me to win, even if their advice doesn’t benefit them.”
At Team Financial Group, our biggest goal is to see our clients succeed. Clients come to us from unique situations, which is why we prefer to customize a financing solution that will work best for each of them individually.
Just like with JDE Concrete, we can help you determine the best path forward for your business, even if it doesn’t help our own bottom line. Because we put our clients first, they know they can trust us to give them honest answers.
