Our Story

Mechanics is an unusual name for a bank, what’s the story?

What's in a name? A lot, we think! Over the years, people have asked us about our name, Mechanics Bank. The bank's founders chose "Mechanics" because of their close relationship with "the working man" (or “working people” as might be said today). Not surprisingly, the values, which served the working man so well at the turn of the 20th century, still attract customers from all walks of life today.
