Cambridge Savings Bank (CSB), a full-service mutual bank with a customer-first approach and more than $5 billion in assets, today announced it has recently extended a new credit facility for Freeport, Maine-based Eastland Shoe Corp.

By taking the time to understand the company’s unique needs and challenges, CSB’s Asset-Based Lending team created a custom solution for Eastland that will enable the company to refinance existing debt, as well as provide additional liquidity that the company will utilize to support multiple growth initiatives.

“As a family-owned business that’s been around for over 65 years, we understand the importance of working with the right partners to grow our business,” said Jim Klein, President of Eastland. “When we met Cambridge Savings Bank, their relationship-centric approach was apparent right away. We knew their Asset Based Lending team was the right fit for our needs. They asked the right questions, and it was clear that they genuinely cared about our success.”

“We’ve always taken great pride in supporting the businesses in our communities, getting to know our customers and working with them to find out how we can best serve their needs,” said Yvonne Kizner, Senior Vice President – Asset Based Lending at CSB. “The pandemic has only strengthened our commitment, and resolve.
