Building financial solutions to take your business to new heights.

Payment and banking solutions to reinforce your business needs.

New infrastructure is the backbone of a healthy economy. From a sprawling outdoor shopping mall to a streamlined highway overpass, people around the country depend on the construction industry to draft, develop and modernize infrastructure to conduct business and create meaningful interactions. But for many contractors, the equipment that powers their business goes beyond just excavators and concrete mixers. Behind the scenes, back-offices are looking for ways to create profitability, increase visibility into payments, reduce fraud risks and decrease costs overall. When it comes to serving the construction industry, Commerce Bank has the experience, structure and stability to provide robust solutions for your organization.
