"I see Mechanics on several levels: the charity level, the friendship level–it’s all there. And for all the things you need to run a business, they’re the experts, and that’s what you want: the experts.
Understanding each other, understanding the different businesses we’re involved in – I don’t think you can get that if your bank’s not local.”
"From the moment I met with Mechanics Savings Bank I felt an old-fashioned level of customer service, closeness, and trust you used to find at a local community bank.
Mechanics understands who we are, they believe strongly in us, and they’re always ready and willing to help us whenever they can. I know I can call them and they’ll be here to help me...and they go above and beyond any other bank I’ve ever worked with. I feel important to them. I recommend Mechanics Savings Bank all the time.”

"Mechanics makes banking easy and offers me real peace of mind, so I can focus on running my business."
"I recommend Mechanics 100%. When I was looking for a bank nine years ago, Mechanics took the time to sit side by side with me, as a partner to learn about my business and discuss ways they could help. They really value the small business customer and are always looking out for us. They greet me with a smile and make me feel like the priority. Their focus on customer service is A+. Mechanics is EXACTLY what I was looking for, and I’d tell any business to go to Mechanics to talk with them before making any decisions.”
-Steve Napolitano, Owner of Dairy Queen, Windham, Maine
"We were a small business with a big adventure in mind, and Mechanics was right there with us, every step of the way."
"When it came to financing our new facility, we never felt like we were going it alone. Mechanics really understood our business and our vision, and they had a lot of solid advice. They helped us secure our SBA loan and financed the rest. It was so comforting to know that Mechanics had our back and never waivered in their belief of our company.
It’s a great partnership on multiple levels, but it’s more than that. With the same mission, history, and commitment to the community, it feels like our businesses are woven together.”
-Annette & Michael Nadeau, Owners of Bedard Pharmacy & Medical Supplies, with stores in Auburn and Lewiston, Maine
"Mechanics makes my life easier in so many ways, and they're always working to help me make money. Now, that's a great bank!"
"We moved all our banking to Mechanics nearly a decade ago, and I’ve been absolutely happy ever since. Our business credit line is a perfect example. It gives us the power to purchase sizeable rare coin collections and jewelry estates on the spot. And when we’ve had a chance to expand our store, Mechanics has come through with very attractive financing options.
Everyone at the bank has been fantastic...so friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive! I’ve never had to wait for an answer. They go out of their way for us all the time, always striving to understand our business and help us save money. We love working with Mechanics.”
