Industrial Bank – U Street Office, Washington
On Aug. 20, 1934, Founder Jesse H. Mitchell opened the doors of Industrial Bank for the first time. Today, it is one of the largest African-American owned and operated commercial banks in the United States.
We remain strong because of our mission to promote the financial and economic empowerment of our diverse community. We have never in the past nor will we in the future turn our back on the communities that need us most.
Our customers depend on us to be strong for them; to trust that their hard-earned dollars are safe and looked after; but it does not stop there. We are not just strong for our customers banking needs but we are strong for many non-profit and community groups who depend on our support and generosity to help them continue to thrive. We are proud of the many contributions we make to organizations that are doing all they can to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.
In 1934, we were strong during a time when the banking system failed. We understood then that the relationship with our community would be the source of our legacy of strength. Now that the banking system has once again seen troubling times, it is fitting that our high commitment to ethics, community, and our customers has carried us through again.
We were here for you then, we are here for you now, and we will be here for you tomorrow because when you are Industrial Bank you are Industrial Strong.
