Facility Upgrades: Alternative Funding Strategies for Industrial Operations

This seminar will focus on alternative funding strategies for industrial clients who need to upgrade facilities and processes with net zero budget impact. ABM and KeyBank are co-presenting at this seminar that is built for industrial entities whose facilities and processes are a drain on the budget and operations.

Older building systems and process equipment can be upgraded with alternative financing in a way which does not impact the budget. You will learn how to apply the most effective energy management techniques to harness rising utility costs.

Presenter profiles

Jamie Feltes is a specialist for KeyBank’s energy efficiency and renewables initiatives, called Key4Green. She works with local and national teams that help businesses achieve their goals through energy efficiency and renewable lending strategies. This is the process of optimizing your facilities equipment and building infrastructure to reduce energy consumption allowing an organization to realize real cash savings that can then be reallocated towards achieving business goals.

Rob Wood of ABM has spent twenty years working with industrial clients to improve financial results through better operational efficiency. His experience with General Electric, AEP Energy and ABM allows a holistic approach to solutions. Starting with the financial needs of the client, he builds solutions which allow businesses to put more of their capital and cash flow toward investments which make a difference to their customers.

This seminar is targeted toward small to medium-sized manufacturers, entrepreneurs and startups.
