Client testimonial: Charles Machine Works, Inc.

Charles Machine Works (CMW)

As CMW expanded, they sought a bank that could finance both the inventory floor plan needs of its 168 dealer locations and the retail requirements of end users. Impressed by our stability and compehensive offerings, CMW selected Bank of the West as their exclusive sales finance partner. Today, we provide them with a range of commercial banking solutions from aircraft finance to a private label commercial card.

“Bank of the West stepped in at a critical time, when our markets were in turmoil. It’s a specialized relationship where they’ve helped our sales with vendor programs that really support our dealers and users.”
