Small Business Loans for Manufacturers



Funding America’s Makers

Our commitment to manufacturing

For 30 years, CRF has been making small business loans to manufacturers that traditional lenders can’t make, including loans to refinance debt, obtain working capital, acquire equipment, purchase an existing business or buy commercial real estate.

Innovations in process and precision manufacturing and emerging technology industries require accessible capital, and CRF’s manufacturing loan program provides the kind of responsible financing needed for continued growth and success.

We put our unique lending model to work for manufacturers by working closely with businesses and trusted partners that have expertise in the manufacturing industry. We also work with a variety of community-level partners – such as business incubators, manufacturing trade associations, other capital providers and more – to ensure our financing solutions are comprehensive, appropriate, responsive, and sustainable.


We finance all kinds of manufacturers, but specialize in high-growth sectors such as:

Food Manufacturing
From tortilla manufacturers to chocolate makers, CRF has helped food manufacturers purchase food processing equipment, refinance high-cost debt, and scale their businesses. A loan from CRF can expand production capacity, increase inventory on hand, improve supply-chain logistics, finance new product research and development, and hire workers.

Machinery Manufacturing
CRF works with machinery manufacturers to secure financing for new material, heavy equipment, product-line expansion, hiring, and more.

Computers/Electronics Manufacturing
The high-tech economy is booming, with U.S. manufacturers leading industry growth trends in semiconductors, medical devices, electrical harnesses and more. CRF provides accessible financing for companies committed to innovation, expansion and job growth.
