More than lenders, we’re business partners.
Our business banking team is adept at working with businesses on cash needs projections and long range business plans. It’s all part of our bank-business partnership philosophy.
The convenience and security of a line of credit creates nearly unlimited financial flexibility. You can request a transfer into designated accounts quickly and easily, allowing your business to take advantage of purchases and payment opportunities.
The operating line will support inventory and account receivable cash shortfalls to support continued operations of your business.
Depending on your business cycle or industry, a permanent working capital line of credit may be an option.
Permanent working capital loans are provided to fund permanent working capital needs that may be created by business growth and expansion, replacement of previously-funded short term debt, or capital that previously was funded by equity. These loans are for long term capital needs and should not be utilized to fund seasonal variances in operating cash flow.
Is your business planning to make a large purchase or capital investment? Our lenders understand the business cycles and timing of cash flow and will design a term loan payment program at rates and terms that work for you.
Let one of our loan officers help you make that much needed purchase today.
Purchase land or a new or existing commercial property. Finance $25,000 to $2 million (larger amounts considered) – up to 80% of the property value (including fees and closing costs).
Our experienced lending team will evaluate your plan and make recommendations on the best financing options with rates and terms to support your business cash flow needs.
