Glenn Engineering and Associates, Ltd., in North Huntington, PA specializes in working with the people who govern the cities, boroughs, and townships of southwestern Pennsylvania. When Laura Branthoover sought financing to acquire Glenn Engineering, she faced obstacles with finding the right financial partner. But then she was referred to Patrick Thomas from the First Commonwealth Bank team, and soon Julia Vitale from our SBA team was supporting Laura as well.
Patrick provided all the steps in the process I would need to make it to the finish line and had confidence we could make it happen from the beginning. He helped me set up all the future accounts I would need to keep my business running, and also provided options for making day-to-day operations as easy as possible. Patrick was able to answer business questions outside of his area of expertise or would put me in contact with the right people to help continue to make my business a success.
Laura plans to register Glenn Engineering as a Woman Owned Small Business and will focus on finding more construction design work with the goal of hiring more engineers as her company grows.
First Commonwealth and Patrick’s knowledge and dedication are the only reason I believed obtaining this business was possible. From the beginning, I had their guidance and support and through the process have learned how amazing they are. I couldn’t have made it this far without the help of Patrick and Julia.
