ATLANTA -- Patriot Capital Corp., a leading provider of equipment financing solutions, is offering financing incentives from as low as 0% to dealers in the Sinclair Oil network seeking to upgrade their dispenser and payment technologies to meet new Europay, MasterCard & Visa (EMV) payment standards.

Sinclair-branded dealers receive 60-month financing term and financing rates through this program. Dealers upgrading both dispensers and point-of-sale (POS) equipment qualify for the special 0% financing from Patriot Capital. The rate and term offer a way to meet the new EMV payment standards ahead of the announced deadlines.

“This program allows Sinclair dealers to provide an outstanding customer experience both at the fueling island and in-store,” said Russ Gibson, manager marketing technical services for Sinclair Oil Corp.

“Sinclair has a long history of providing strong support to their dealer network,” said Chris Santy, president of Patriot Capital Corp. “With both the EMV in-store deadline and interest-rate increases on the horizon, there’s never been a better time for fuel marketers to be proactive in obtaining the equipment they need, with a minimal amount of hassle and maximum amount of flexibility.”

Sinclair dealers can take advantage of the financing incentives through October 31.

Sinclair is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is part of the Sinclair family of companies. Sinclair owns and operates two refineries in Wyoming and more than 1,000 miles of pipeline in the Rocky Mountains. The corporation markets fuel in the Midwest and western United States, supplying fuel to more than 1,400 branded gas stations making the Sinclair brand.
