Eighty-six (86) years later, Industrial Bank has over 140 employees and more than $550 million in assets.
As the oldest African American owned commercial bank in the Mid-Atlantic region, we believe it is our duty to support our communities and educate our customers on how they can achieve their financial goals and create wealth.

We offer a full range of banking services including deposit and loan products that will meet your personal or business needs and help you meet any financial goal you set.
Industrial Bank offers a full range of banking services from ten banking centers. These services include a host of checking, savings, and investment accounts for retail and commercial customers, cash management, corporate online banking, electronic banking services, debit cards and a variety of consumer, real estate, and commercial loans and lines of credit.
We know that when you bank you have a choice. Over the years our customers have banked with us for many reasons. Some have chosen Industrial Bank because we have looked out for their best interest, others because we have earned and kept their trust. A host of our customers have chosen to bank with us because their parents and grandparents believed in our mission, vision, and core values. Most importantly, our customers know that we care.
Industrial Bank is working to create a vibrant economy through strategic partnerships and financial education seminars. As a Treasury certified CDFI (Community Development Financial Institution), we annually reinvest over 60% of our assets back into the communities we serve and, our team of experienced bankers provide hundreds of hours in financial education sessions. Industrial Bank believes that an informed customer is a strong customer, and together the bank and its customers provide a strong foundation for the community.
“Our commitment has only grown stronger through the years, and we stand poised to bring our unwavering commitment of delivering products and services that educate and help to build generational wealth to the communities we serve.” - B. Doyle Mitchell, Jr., President/CEO
