Public Company Information:
STAMFORD, Conn. & TITUSVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Synchrony Financial (NYSE:SYF), a premier consumer financial services company with 80 years of retail heritage, today announced a new, multi-year agreement to offer a credit card program for consumers to finance products and services of Precision Door Service.
Precision Door Service sells, repairs and installs garage doors and garage door openers. The company was founded as a family business and today has more than 75 franchise-owned locations nationwide. Consumers will be able to access special financing options with a Synchrony Bank-issued credit card.*
“We’re pleased to work with an industry leader like Precision Door Service that shares our passion for quality and customer service,” said Glenn Marino, executive vice president and CEO, Payment Solutions, Synchrony Financial. “Providing financing options further shows their commitment to customers, since our research shows that the availability of financing is important to consumers making major purchases.”
The availability of financing is important to consumers, according to Synchrony Financial’s Fourth Annual Major Purchase Consumer Study.** Seventy-five percent of Synchrony Bank cardholders in the home improvement sector surveyed said they “always” seek promotional financing when making a purchase, and 44% said they would go to another retailer, or not make a purchase at all, if financing were not available.
“We are excited about the opportunity to provide our customers with the robust benefits offered by Synchrony Financial through our new financing program agreement,” said Bill Walden, president and COO of Precision Door Service. “Our customers will now have access to a host of flexible finance options offered by Synchrony, to accompany the best-in-the-industry products and services they have come to expect from our company.”
