Established in 1959, Triad Financial Services, Inc. is the oldest manufactured housing finance company in existence. And there’s a reason for our longevity - Triad was built on a philosophy of providing financing and services to the manufactured housing market while maintaining the highest of credit standards. As a result of our commitment to provide the best possible service to customers and lenders, Triad has become a leader in the industry.
The company, which was founded in 1959 as The Investment and Insurance Company to provide mortgage and insurance services to the manufactured home industry, currently services more than $350 million in loans and enjoys solid relationships with more than 40 lending partners.
Once a small, niche player in the regional market, Triad enjoyed tremendous growth following its purchase by Don Glisson, Sr. in 1975. In the 1980s, Glisson’s two sons, Don Jr. and Mike, came on board to help run the family business, and Triad quickly grew to a multi-million-dollar lender with a strong reputation for responsive service and consistently high-quality loans. The company has since made its name as a “no-brainer” in the manufactured housing industry, as it offers manufactured housing dealers fast turnaround and responsive service on loans backed by a diverse range of lending partners. Given the fact that one out of every ten homes sold in the United States today is a manufactured home, the company has an expansive market sphere and offers a high-profit solution to dealers.
“I’m proud to say we’ve grown our company through the last fifty years because we offer a simple, profitable program to manufactured home dealers. It’s a win-win situation, in which dealers find it easier to make sales, and lenders find it easier to build their portfolios with high-quality, low-risk loans,” said Don Glisson, Jr., Triad Chairman and CEO. “Fifty years is certainly a big milestone for us. We’re proud and gratified to be market leaders in our industry after our first five decades.”
Triad's headquarters are in Jacksonville, Florida with branch offices in Chicago, Houston, Newport Beach, California and Wichita, Kansas. We currently provide financing and services to 44 states through our local and regional representatives, and we employ the best people in the business.
