Tollefsen started out in 1986 as Formaation. Transforming and growing in 2012 Formaation became Tollefsen LLC. Tollefsen was originally started by Mr. Chuck Tollefsen to assist other companies in the next stage of business growth. They then, as today, focused on the areas of creativity, financing, government incentives, project strategic planning and implementation.
Over the years Tollefsen has completed projects in varying fields. Examples are oil and gas, trucking, theme parks, Broadway productions, medical, dental, office equipment, software and more all with the same services. Tollefsen teamed up with business owners and operators to provide the growth functions necessary for a company to start up turnaround or expand.
Tollefsen has earned its reputation by taking on challenging projects that had unique features and requirements. Today and early on companies have struggled with operating their business and trying to expand at the same time. Tollefsen has completed hundreds of projects over the years ranging from single designs and logos to complex multi participant transactions.
About 25 years ago Mr. Tollefsen explains how Tollefsen works together with governments to achieve special projects:
“When I started I didn’t have any capital to speak of. I wanted to benefit business by helping them utilize government incentives that would lower their costs and help them grow.
While on a project in California I was meeting the USDA in Washington. While walking around the great buildings and institutions of our Nation I realized that if I learned how to work well with our government and its financial benefits, I could grow the business without the need for venture capital or debt. It has worked."
We have completed projects in concert with the Import/Export Bank, Bureau of Indian Affairs, SBA, USDA, Health and Human Services and the Treasury. We always adhere to the spirit of these programs and pass along the program benefits to the business and ultimately their customers which enables them to offer their services to their customers at lower prices while maintaining their quality.
Government incentives and loan programs are essential to our Country’s growth. Every leading Country in the world has them. I am thankful for the good relationship we have we all the different agencies.”
Always with the customer in mind, Tollefsen is endeavoring to reach its most important goal or making a positive difference for companies, individuals and their families.
