SBA 504 Loan with SomerCor 

McCann has been a construction equipment and materials supplier to Lake and McHenry Illinois counties since the mid-seventies.  The company services and repairs all of the equipment brands they sell.  The opportunity arose to purchase the property next door to their existing facility in Wauconda, IL.  McCann used the 504 loan to purchase and renovate the property into an 11,000 square foot Service Center.  This Service Center has seven service bays where the company’s technicians service and repair customer equipment as well as the McCann rental fleet in the market.  It also allows for the company’s area field technicians to have a regional location to work from.

“The building we built in Wauconda, IL is a critical part of the strategic growth plans we have in place. The project kicked off summer of 2021, a challenging time in the market. There were supply chain disruptions, input cost escalations and then borrowing costs started to shoot up in 2022. We were grateful for the collaboration and assistance between our primary lender, Wintrust, and the SomerCor team,” said Owner and CEO, Jim McCann. “They really made a complex process flow very easily. We were up against deadlines to get the loan closed and Senior Closing Officer, Monika Czubiak went above and beyond to help us every step of the way.â€
