Avon Equipment Leasing, Inc. (AEL) was incorporated in August, 1984 by James M. Weeks, Jr., with the intent of leasing automobiles, trucks and other equipment. After having spent twelve years as President of a closely held vehicle leasing company in Lakeland, Florida, yet a minority stockholder, Jim decided to start a leasing company of his own.

The major emphasis during the first two years in business was placed on vehicle leasing. As AEL’s portfolio of vehicle leases increased and a profit center became firmly established, AEL’s expansion into equipment leasing began. Because of our wide and varied base of lessees, the effect was a phenomenal influx of offers and inquiries involving equipment leasing — this activity stretched from “end users” to brokers and vendors.

In 2005, J.J. Weeks took over the operation from his father and the name became Avon Leasing, Inc. J.J. has earned and holds the designation of Certified Vehicle Leasing Expert (C.V.L.E). Avon Leasing’s sales and administrative personnel have come from the leasing, finance and banking industries. As a member of the National Vehicle Leasing Association (NVLA) as well as both the United Association of Equipment Lessors (UAEL), the National Association of Equipment Leasing Brokers (NAELB), and the OneWorld Business Finance Co-op. We remain constantly aware of changes in tax laws and economic conditions that may affect our industry. This insures that our portfolio of vehicle and equipment lessees is properly managed by our Staff. Avon Leasing has been a member of both the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Council of Polk County since 1985.
