Business Credit Services


Credit services are an important part of our relationship banking philosophy and commitment to serving the financial needs of the local business community. We want to serve as your trusted financial steward, so we take the time to study your goals and to understand your short- and long-term credit needs. Because The Mechanics Bank has one of the longest tenured staffs in the industry, it is likely that you will work with the same professional banker for a long time, thus assuring continuity of service.

Whether it is additional working capital, the need for updated equipment, the acquisition of real estate, or funds to take advantage of a competitive situation, we want to help. We strive to make the credit process as easy and convenient as possible. Local knowledge is important. You can be assured that your application will be reviewed personally by a local, knowledgeable, loan professional. Our goal is to say "yes".
