The journey begins
Operate Lease was established in 1969 as a leasing company named “Tif’eret Hamechonit Ltd.”, under the management of the founder, Shmuel Gantz.
Under the management of Shmuel and Ran Gantz, Operate Lease displayed constant annual growth and presented new standards of professionalism in service, car fleet management and vehicle ongoing maintenance. Ran Gantz, the company’s CEO, joined the management team in 1996 and brought a new spirit with him. Today, Operate Lease is the most experienced company amongst Israel’s leading leasing companies.
Promotion and development
At the early 2000s, when the car fleet management field started its strong momentum, Operate Lease leaped, in cooperation with Bank Hapoalim, which believed in the company’s professional capabilities, to manage the largest and most complex vehicle fleets in the industry, for example, the fleets of Raphael, IBM Israel, Unilever, Bank Hapoalim and others. From this point the company made a significant leap forward, with extensive operations and the creation of firm financial leverages. In 2007, Operate Lease issued 50% of its shares to the Mayer Group, which has many lines of business, including importing and marketing vehicles under the brands Volvo, Honda and Jaguar. Ever since, Tif’eret Hamechonit and the Mayer Group have been holding equal shares of the company. By virtue of a strong financial back and experience and professionalism in the car industry, Operate Lease paves its way to excellence and quality in leasing services.
Operate – every customer is a favorite
As a leader and an expert in the leasing field the company transferred the core of its activities to operating lease and car fleet management.
Already back in 1995, Operate Lease was based on the strategy that each driver customer would receive the highest level of professional and service attention with the motto “every customer is a favorite”. This motto is implemented through the diagnosis and matching of the most suitable leasing package for each organization and each customer, from small, new businesses to the largest corporations in the market, and in the professional, dynamic and fast-responsive service that gave Operate its reputation of being a company with top service. Operate Lease is the preferred company by private customer and companies of all sectors and sizes.
At the disposal of every customer are skilled service persons that would always be glad to find solutions for a wide variety of issues, more than 120 service centers and repair shops across Israel and a human phone response 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
