Bauer Financial, Inc., the nation’s leading bank rating and research firm, is honored to recognize Merchants and Manufacturers Bank, Joliet, Ill., with its highest 5-Star rating.

To earn this Superior 5-Star rating, Merchants and Manufacturers Bank excels in areas of capital, asset quality, profitability and much more.

Karen L. Dorway, president of the rating firm, has a rare vantage point, having monitored the industry for more than two decades.

“It isn’t surprising to those of us who watch the industry that ‘plain vanilla’ banks, those that didn’t get into risky investments or lending, are the banks that are still standing strong today,” Dorway said. “ Merchants and Manufacturers Bank has stayed true to its purpose of serving its community in a prudent and responsible manner.”

Established in 1969, Merchants and Manufacturers Bank has been serving the banking needs of its local communities for 43 years. It operates through four conveniently located branch offices in Channahon and Joliet and can also be found on the internet at www.m-mbank.com.
