Maria Medei is the President of Casilio Concrete, a family-owned concrete business established in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania back in 1938 by her grandfather, Frank Casilio. What started as a small concrete contracting business has expanded to include four batch plants, material hauling, and a fleet of more than 30 trucks. They also operate a concrete recycling plant, Crushcrete, run by Maria's son Tony.

Maria has been a longtime customer of New Tripoli Bank. When her business was looking to open a new plant in Nazareth, PA, Maria worked with Bob Kern, VP Commercial Lending, to secure the financing she needed to buy the property. In a business as costly and ever-changing as concrete construction, Maria needs the personal, hands-on approach of a community bank to respond to her business's needs in a timely fashion. On top of that, our online banking and remote deposit capture services make it easy for her to access her accounts and deposit checks from the comfort of her home or office.

Jill is the owner of a small tax and financial services business in Allentown, PA that handles business taxes, tax planning, and more. She operates the business with her husband and two of her children, with additional locations in Palmerton and Easton.

When Jill's previous bank was planning another merger, she looked into what the combined banks were offering and didn't like what she saw. Instead, she shopped around for a community bank that could provide her small business with the personalized support and services her business required.

Jill selected New Tripoli Bank because we have all the services of larger banks with the added benefit of being a local community bank that could provide her small business with the attention it needs. She relies on New Tripoli Bank for both her business and personal financial needs.

Click to hear Kyra's story

When Kyra came to New Tripoli Bank, she was looking for a loan to buy out Wanamakers General Store, a locally-owned and operated general store that was built in the late 1800's, from her former business partner. Both Kyra and Wanamakers were customers of New Tripoli Bank, which made the process of securing a mortgage easy for this small business owner.

Kyra is the fifth owner of Wanamakers General Store, which prides itself in selling bulk foods, locally-sourced coffee and produce, includes a full deli that serves handmade sandwiches and salads, as well as selling toys, arts, crafts, and other items created locally. The philosophy of Wanamakers is to do everything locally, and New Tripoli Bank stood out to them as a local bank that could provide them with modern conveniences in a community bank.

Click to hear Jarrett's story

Raceseng is a father-and-son company from Alburtis, PA, that manufactures high-end car parts for Japanese and European sports cars. Founder and owner Jarrett Seng came to us 14 years ago with a simple request: he was looking for funding to purchase four new machines that would help Raceseng expand their backyard business into a larger company with increased production and more employees.

Where other banks were skeptical, New Tripoli Bank saw the passion and dedication Jarrett had toward pursuing his dream and we were happy to finance their equipment purchase. The additional machines helped reduce the hours required of Jarrett and his father in order to manufacture their products. They soon moved the business to a bigger location and hired more employees to expand their operation.

Raceseng has been a customer of New Tripoli Bank for the past 14 years and in that time we've watched them grow from one racing family's dream to a premiere innovator and manufacturer of high-end automotive items. This is why we're willing to take risks where other banks won't – because we know people are always the best investment.

Click to hear Jeremy's story

Jeremy Rex has been a customer of New Tripoli Bank for his entire life. That's why he came to us for financing when he had the opportunity to purchase his family home, originally built by his great grandfather. The home had been in his family for three previous generations; it was where Jeremy spent his childhood and he wanted to provide his children with the same experience he had growing up.

Our lending team was more than happy to help Jeremy find the mortgage that was perfect for him and his family's budget. Now he lives with his wife, two kids, and their dog in the home he grew up in and one he hopes his kids can raise a family in as well.
