Delta Financial Group

Delta Financial is an independent, self-funded equipment lessor that finances, business-critical equipment across a wide range of industries and asset classes. Backed by a prominent family office, we have been in business since 1963 focused on commercial real estate development and mortgage lending. Seeded with industry veterans from bank and independent equipment finance companies, Delta has added an equipment leasing platform to the group of companies.

Delta is built on a core objective of real, social impact in our community with emphasis on sponsorship and outreach with wounded/disabled veteran organizations.

Since 1963, the Delta Legacy

Founded in 1963 by Rudy Heitler, JR, Army veteran with the Corps of Engineers, Delta developed its first commercial office building in Baton Rouge, LA.

Over the next 5 decades, the group of companies became known as The Delta Companies, with Delta Financial Services (SEC registered broker dealer) founded in 1970, and Delta Financial LLC being formed in 2003 as a platform for direct opportunistic lending. Delta was reoriented in 2020 with a team of experienced equipment finance veterans, to become a best-in-class equipment leasing company. To this day our team is driven by Rudy Heitler’s vision, integrity and common sense. We are a group of Military veterans, industry leaders and equipment finance professionals that have joined together to carry on Rudy’s legacy. The Delta Financial Group is proud of the company’s heritage and team members Military Service.

Delta is an independent provider of equipment financing solutions. As a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, we are focused on originating and servicing Fair Market Value (FMV) operating leases for enterprise-level, business-critical equipment across a wide range of industries and asset classes.
