About Apex Capital Corp

From a Rented Room to a Downtown High Rise:
Apex Capital Through the Years

Apex Capital Corp opened its doors just before Thanksgiving in 1995. Those modest doors led to a rented room with four desks on Cockrell Avenue in Fort Worth. The client-focused freight factoring company with an exceptional employee culture, a fixture in Fort Worth since the very beginning, soon moved to an office on Merrimac Circle.

Before long, buoyed by successful growth, Apex relocated headquarters to the Western Place building on Bryant Irvin Road. And now, Apex has moved on up. The new Apex Capital headquarters are in downtown Fort Worth in the sprawling Bank of America Tower.

Apex’s David and Dean: Launching a Company Ready to Make a Difference

Friends David Baker and Dean Tetirick met in early 1995 and by the end of that year their vision to launch a freight factoring company that takes care of clients, business partners, and employees became Apex Capital. David and Dean were clear in their mission – build a company that makes a difference in the industry but especially in the lives of truckers across the country.

David’s vision still rings true today “To create a company with a culture second to none, that would install fear in the hearts of the competition, who could never measure up to the service offered … where people would leave work at the end of the day and go home and tell their kids how they made a difference in the life of someone that day.”

Customer Service is Top Priority:
Apex is America’s Favorite Factor

Customer service is a big deal at Apex. In fact, it’s the deal. All of us at Apex believe that treating people fairly, the way you would want to be treated, is the definition of business success. That’s why Apex freight factoring clients have a dedicated account executive that answers calls. We know our clients by name, not numbers, and offer personal attention to help trucking companies grow.

Each client experience is customized because trucking isn’t a one-size-fits-all career. Plus, Apex provides solution-based tools and services to help our clients’ businesses – a Mobile Factoring™ app, an Account Management Portal (AMP), FREE credit checks, 24/7 Roadside Rescue, and, a custom load board. These reasons and many more are why Apex is America’s Favorite Factor.
