August 2014 – Xcēd, a subsidiary of Sasser Family Holdings, Inc. is mounting an expansion of its service offerings into the Canadian market. Xcēd  now offers leasing and single investor equipment financing solutions and life cycle management of all aircraft ground support equipment throughout North America.


“We are already experiencing a thriving U.S. market and will soon be servicing all the major airports throughout Canada,” said William Long, Managing Director. “It was part of our global expansion effort to have a presence outside the U.S. in 2014. Going forward, we will continue to evaluate other global markets.”

Xcēd brings a wide range of customer-focused services including asset management, leasing, financing, trade-in of used ground support equipment, buy/sell services, and refurbishment services to the GSE industry.

Xcēd is one of six subsidiary companies of Sasser Family Holdings (SFH), a 4th generation company with roots dating back to 1928. SFH includes two other North American businesses focused on asset management. These are Chicago Freight Car Leasing (CFCL), a leading lessor of rolling stock and Union Leasing, which offers flexible automotive fleet lease financing and value-added services.

“The life cycle of ground transportation equipment gives Sasser’s family of businesses an asset with a strategic life cycle falling between CFCL’s rail cars and Union Leasing’s automobiles,” said Long.
