There is a lot to be said for “Being Local.” To us, being local means that our customers have the advantage of meeting with us individually–face-to-face, and we believe that’s just how business should be done. Important decisions about your company should be made in person with someone you trust, rather than exchanging emails and phone calls with someone in a remote office who doesn’t know you or your company dynamics and how they play into your community–our community. This is the way community banking at Central Bank is done.
We’ve been serving businesses in the Springfield area since 1956, from commercial developments and real estate purchases to working capital and lines of credit. Our clients can choose from a broad-based menu of checking, investment and cash management tools to keep your business running smoothly.
If you haven’t experienced local community banking at its best, reach out to any of our Commercial Lenders today to discuss what’s right for you and your business. Whether you’re just setting up shop or financing a multimillion-dollar expansion, we’re here to help change the way you do banking.
