Loans for Manufacturers

Funding America’s Makers

Our commitment to manufacturing

A revitalized manufacturing sector is a key factor in rebuilding the middle class and creating community wealth. 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.

CRF puts its unique lending model to work for American manufacturers. We do this 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 make loans to all kinds of manufacturers, but specialize in high-growth sectors such as:

Food Manufacturing
Food manufacturing is one of the fastest-growing sub-sectors of the economy, owing to changing consumer tastes in food and advances in supply-chain technology. A loan from CRF can help expand production capacity, increase inventory on hand, improve supply-chain logistics, finance new product research and development, and hire workers.

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

Machine shops are the “makers for the makers,” fabricating precision machine parts and tools for the manufacturing industry. CRF has experience working with machinery manufacturers to secure financing for new equipment, expansion, hiring and more.

For 30 years, CRF and its partners have 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.

All loans subject to credit approval
