Windsor, ON – Windsor Family Credit Union (WFCU) announced today an automobile leasing partnership with CULA Canada (CUL Administration of Canada Ltd.) that will provide automotive lease offers on new Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge, Ram and FIAT models. The program, launched this week, provides a valuable alternative towards owning a new vehicle through all Windsor and Essex County Chrysler Canada dealerships.

“Offering members an alternative to using cash or a loan to get into a new vehicle is a service we [WFCU] believe to be beneficial to most of our members and the general public,” said Martin J. Komsa, WFCU President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Entry into the new vehicle market can be challenging for some and therefore having access to a customized, safe, and competitive lease program is timely. As a lease provider of new Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge, Ram and FIAT vehicles, WFCU is able to assist in providing additional vehicle options to those who may otherwise not have had access to such a selection.”  

“With an 89-year legacy in Windsor, which is home to our Chrysler Canada headquarters and world-class minivan assembly plant, we are very excited about this new alternative through another well-established local business.  Collectively, with WFCU, we have a large base of employees and customers who will greatly benefit from this all-new lease offer, available through seven Essex County Chrysler Canada dealerships” said David Buckingham, Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Canada.  “Over the last few years we have worked diligently with providers to meet consumer needs by offering various finance alternatives.  This is the latest offering to assist consumers with having the necessary finance arrangements to suit their automotive needs.”

Speaking to the ever expanding line of product and service offerings that WFCU offers its members, Komsa defines the credit union as ‘the total package’ when it comes to financial services.  “Aligning ourselves [WFCU] with organizations that can offer members additional quality products and services to enhance their financial, investment, insurance and trust portfolio with the credit union, has allowed WFCU to sustain many long-term member relationships and the position as a leading financial services provider in Windsor and Essex County.”

CULA Canada provides the technology and staff to make it possible for Credit Unions to participate in consumer and commercial automobile leasing. CULA Canada, Credit Union Leasing of America (CULA), has been committed to credit unions for almost 25 years, originating over 70,000 automobile leases worth $2 billion dollars, which makes them the industry leader.

This special partnership allows WFCU exclusivity in CULA Canada’s Ontario credit union program.
