About Us


Milton Lewis established American Credit Corporation, a retail auto financing company in 1943. Milton, a visionary, saw a need and responded to it by pioneering a novel business concept for the time… leasing. Creating programs tailored to meet the unique needs of companies and individuals, American Leasing sold the concept of leasing rather than traditional ownership. Milton’s model became a reality in 1957 when he founded American Leasing Corporation, one of the first leasing companies in the United States.

Today, American Leasing Corporation’s Essex County, N.J. 2 acre facility features a state-of-the-art reconditioning center, responsive, dedicated sales and service professionals, and fine-tuned experience in matching fleet needs to a wide variety of clients. The company services both local and national accounts, with leased cars in every state of the Union, and a dealer network that stretches over the entire continental United States.

American Leasing Corporation remains a family owned and operated company, with Milton’s son Arthur now serving as President and CEO, and Arthur’s son Daniel on board as Vice President. Today, as in the past, ALC’s mission is to focus on and satisfy each client’s unique fleet leasing needs. It’s a philosophy that keeps our clients coming back to us and drives our continued growth and success in the industry.
