Experienced, personalized, local and global.
Founded in 1972 by four young entrepreneurs, CSI began as a computer reseller in Oklahoma. One of those founders was Ken Steinback of St. Louis, Missouri who continued to lead the company for decades. By 1981, the company had switched its business to leasing and moved its headquarters to St. Louis. CSI’s international expansion began in 1995 with the opening of CSI Leasing Canada, and we have steadily grown ever since. We now have 1,500+ employees and more than 70 offices around the world, while providing lease financing in 50 countries.
On June 10, 2016, Tokyo Century Corporation (formerly Century Tokyo Leasing) acquired ownership of CSI Leasing from Ken and the other employee shareholders. We continue to operate the same way we always have, providing personal attention, robust services and flexible solutions, with more scope for international opportunities and even greater funding capabilities.
