Thank you for clicking on the About Us tab! It’s great to know you want to know us better. If we could, we’d shake your hand right now and say, “It’s nice to meet you!” But until we meet in person, here’s a brief introduction:

Mechanics Bank is an independent, full-service community bank in Richland County, Ohio. In case you’re wondering about the significance of that statement, allow us to tell you a little bit about what it means to us. It means we have remained independently managed for 131 years and what began in 1886 in Mansfield still remains here – headquarters and all. And our management knows our community, not from a map, but because they live here too.

It means we have the freedom to make decisions that are in the best interest of our customers and our community. It means our commitment to the community is as natural to us as banking itself. This is our hometown where many of us either grew up or came to know as home and we wouldn’t have it any other way. It means we know our customers because they are friends and neighbors. It means we have generation upon generation of customers who have called Mechanics their bank, and we couldn’t be more honored to hear it. It means that banking is about more than just money and numbers, ultimately, it’s All about People.
