Financing the future of manufacturing
Digitalizing Today's Manufacturing Floor
Siemens helps manufacturing organizations finance new equipment and technology that maximize productivity, improve efficiency, and reduce time to market. Our solutions enable organizations to adapt to industry's digital transformation and do so affordably and sustainably.
Financing Industry 4.0
Enabling the Next Generation of Manufacturing
Understanding, installing and monitoring advanced software and equipment is just part of meeting the challenge of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT or Industry 4.0). There is also the basic issue of paying for this new technology. Next generation digitalized technology is enabling manufacturers to improve performance through increased manufacturing productivity, improved planning and forecasting, enhanced competitive capabilities and greater financial sustainability.
The potential financial value add of digitalization is estimated to be between 6.3 and 9.8 percent of total annual revenue by 2025. Finance is a core enabler of the digital transformation taking place across industry, and plays a significant role in helping manufacturers unlock their growth potential.
The Siemens Team offer a range of financial solutions to help vendors and manufacturers realize growth ambitions and manage project budgets effectively. Our solutions make equipment and technology more accessible to manufacturers and their customers through innovative solutions. Allow us to help you take on the challenges of this new industrial era and drive value for your next project.
Optimize Your Manufacturing Floor with an Industrial Leader
Rooted in an industrial heritage first established in 1847, Siemens is a global powerhouse focused on the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization. With nine divisions focused on enabling automation and digitalization for customers, financing serves as an all-encompassing solution that reaches across Siemens’ entire industrial portfolio.
With the acceleration of new technology, expectations of businesses are greater than ever before. Dynamic information is needed more quickly, solutions must be more integrated, and products must be delivered to the client faster. In the past, business technology and equipment innovation moved at a slower pace. Businesses would acquire equipment with the understanding that it would deliver benefits over a five-to-10-year period.
Today, businesses can no longer expect one piece of equipment to last a full decade. With dynamic information needed more quickly, manufacturers can no longer afford to forego innovation. Capital is now a paramount requirement for manufacturers to keep their equipment and technology up to date and to stay competitive in today’s digitized market. Siemens Financial Services’ (SFS) approach to financing is designed closely in tandem with Siemens’ market-leading technologies.

Whitepaper: Smart start for smart buildings
Potentials and pathways for self-financing smart buildings
Smart start for smart buildings is the latest research paper from Siemens that examines how the smart building-technology sector is helping organizations gain the benefits of smart buildings by combining technology, services and financing. Known as “Smart Buildings as a Service”, solutions can be structured so that there is potential for zero-net-cost (or even cost savings) over a defined term for the building’s owner. The paper considers three sectors: commercial buildings, government buildings and hospitals.
