About Us

We’re here to help you succeed with money at every stage of your life. Whether you want to save it, invest it, grow it, borrow it or access it, you can always depend on State Bank.

Now well into our second century, we’ve partnered with the people and businesses of our home towns to promote growth, as well as financial freedom and flexibility.

We learned long ago that hiring the right people and putting them in charge of their own destinies produces amazing results for them, for our customers, and for our bank.

At State Bank, our goal is lifelong relationships, so you can imagine how hard we work to keep our long-term customers happy.

Would you like that kind of attention from your bank?


State Bank of Defiance was founded in 1902 by Elbert E. Carter and rapidly grew into one of northwest Ohio’s leading financial institutions.
