How It All Began
Aztec Financial was founded in 1997 by the owners of Bridgewater Companies, the Hanks brothers, and its CFO, John Sirrine. As one of the leading manufacturers and marketers of carpet cleaning chemicals, machines, and accessories, the founders determined that there was a need for stable financing options in the cleaning and restoration industries. The founders of Aztec Financial discovered that customers were often unable to purchase the expensive equipment that was necessary to grow their businesses. This was due to the fact that traditional financing opportunities were difficult to find since carpet cleaning and other floor care services were such a niche industry. With the desire to assist customers to grow their business, Bridgewater developed its own finance company – Aztec Financial.
How We’ve Grown
In the beginning, Aztec Financial was only financing for Bridgewater products. However, as the industry demand grew, so did demand for industry-specific financing. Aztec branched out to offer financing for all carpet cleaning equipment distributors. Soon after, we expanded beyond carpet cleaning, servicing additional industries including flood and fire restoration, abatement, stone fabrication, janitorial/sanitation and surface preparation. This expansion provided specialty contractors with the commercial financing options they needed to also grow across multiple industries.
In 2021, Aztec Financial was acquired by Taycor Financial. Taycor was already a leading finance company, providing a wide range of contractors with the financing services they needed to grow. By combining, Aztec gained the technology and financial service products needed to take financing in cleaning, restoration, and related industries to the next level. In addition, Aztec’s focus on building relationships and industry knowledge complemented Taycor’s programs and strengthened them even further.
Who We Are
Today, Aztec Financial is a Taycor Financial Company. We have many knowledgeable industry experts as part of our team here at Aztec Financial, and a broad range of products and services available for our customers. Our account managers are trained in each industry we offer financing for and have designated distributors and vendors assigned based on industry, location, and relationships with the community.

We are proud to be certified A+ by the BBB and continue to provide top-notch customer service while helping your business grow.
How We Help Others
As Aztec continues to grow, we want the companies we work with to grow as well. We help specialty contractors grow their business by giving them access to affordable leasing and loan options, Working Capital solutions, Lines of Credit, and more. Our familiarity with the equipment and business models means that we can connect our customers with the financing options that are best suited to their business needs.
We also help distributors and vendors grow their business by partnering with them to provide financing options for their customers. Unlike other financial companies, Aztec does not charge any vendor fees when a customer finances through us. Our goal is to increase repeat business for that specific vendor, both through equipment financing and when financing consumable products like chemicals, pads, and PPE. We are proud to work with all major manufacturers such as:
Aztec Financial enjoys working with a variety of companies, vendors, and distributors to bring our customers the best equipment and financing options.
