The Machias Mile

Moving Maine Forward means going above and beyond. It means making an effort to go beyond the transaction and to enter into a relationship with our customers. It’s about having a spirit of generosity and acting on the warm-hearted impulses we all have to make a difference in the lives of others. That’s the Machias Mile.

New Height Group (real estate developers) and Nichols Earth Design are just two Machias Savings Bank customers who discovered the power of the Machias Mile every step of their journey. Check out their stories and more to see how  exceptional partnerships come together to Move Maine Forward.

New Height Verdante

South Portland, Maine

When they were looking for community lenders to assist in a new, large project, New Height Verdante reached out to Machias and shared their vision with Senior Vice President of Business Banking, Francine Cram. From there, a great relationship was formed. Today, Machias and New Height Group share the same vision: building communities, building neighborhoods, one story at a time.

Nichols Earth Design

Presque Isle, Maine

Last year was a tough year for a lot of folks—not just throughout Maine, but throughout the world. So, when Troy Nichols of Nichols Earth Design needed help and guidance to secure his PPP loan, he called Michael Kelly at Machias Savings Bank for help. Take a look at how our team went the extra mile to help Troy and his team…

Lone Pine Brewing

Portland, Maine
When Lone Pine Brewing Company was created in 2016, the tiny brewer focused on small batches of beer, but quickly grew and became a local and regional favorite. Then, in 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Lone Pine began transitioning from kegs to cans. This was a major endeavor — a calculated and intentional move that took lots of planning and collaboration. Lone Pine turned to Machias Savings VP Business Banker, Shawn Leger, to help with funding, and a lasting relationship was formed.

Mainely Tubs

Scarborough, Maine
“You did go the extra mile, you supported us and believed in us.” There’s nothing better than hearing a client share that they felt supported throughout a complex transaction. Not only is Mainely Tubs the #1 dealer globally for the largest manufacturer of hot tubs, but their story became even more meaningful when they sold the business to their employees and became 100% employee-owned. What a journey and one we’re proud to have contributed to.
That’s the Machias Mile. It’s what we do.

Luke’s Lobster

Portland, Maine
Success is all about connections and having the right team around you when opportunities or hiccups arise. We’re honored to be part of Luke’s Lobsters growth story.
“Once the Machias door opened, I realized how many of my friends who I consider the best actors in the lobstering industry were inside. Machias understands commodities, whether it’s potatoes or lobsters, and they understand manufacturing and production. This is naturally a fit.” – Luke Holden, Luke’s Lobster
That’s the Machias Mile. It’s what we do.


MedRhythms is making great strides in utilizing technology to change the lives of people who have experienced strokes. We’re honored to be able to work with such an impactful organization.
“Success doesn’t happen in silos. It really takes a complex ecosystem of partners to make it successful. What we care about as an organization is that those partners are committed to the patients that we serve and that we can trust them… From day one that level of service and the relationship has been top-notch. Everything that I expected and more.”
That’s the Machias Mile. It’s what we do.

Paradis Ace Hardware

Bar Harbor, Maine

We’re all pressed for time and when one phone call, text, or email can make it all happen, that’s very important to a business like us.

We love hearing this type of feedback because that’s the Machias Mile. It’s what we do. We’re excited to see how Paradis Ace Hardware has expanded to better serve the Bar Harbor community, and we look forward to seeing what’s next!

That’s the Machias Mile. It’s what we do.

Camp Modin

Belgrade, Maine

For more than 100 years, Camp Modin has been welcoming campers, providing opportunities for growth and new experiences. As they’ve renovated and expanded over the years, we’ve been proud to offer our support.

“We are continuously expanding; we are always renovating. There’s a constant discussion about things that we’re doing, but whatever we have needed, you’ve been there for us. We’ve had challenges and you’ve solved every one of them.”

That’s the Machias Mile. It’s what we do.
