Although the economy is gradually showing signs of improvement, small companies still have tough decisions to make when considering growth opportunities as part of their 2012 business plans. I recently discussed how Lakeland Bank is helping businesses navigate these decisions with some of my colleagues in an interview featured on limited issues of Money magazine.
We’re seeing an increased demand for commercial mortgages and loans for new construction. Our customers are taking advantage of the current real estate market to buy and renovate buildings instead of continuing to rent. Some businesses have made capital investments after holding back on these types of purchases for several years. More and more, we see companies who are willing to invest in their own business to remain competitive.
Lakeland Bank has built a strong team of experts in all facets of business financing to guide our customers through the financing process and provide them with customized lending solutions.
This team includes the Bank’s top executives who are out in the community, meeting with customers and building close relationships with local officials and other professionals. These relationships give us the ability to provide viable solutions for our business clients.
