Micelli Chocolate Mold Company

Facing a unique opportunity to acquire a compatible business with a modern facility, located just seven miles away, and consolidating it with our business under one roof was too good to be true. We chose to work with Michael DiNizo and Peapack-Gladstone Bank to explore, guide and support us through this “once in a lifetime opportunity.” The transaction was complicated, requiring the 'needle be thread' with precision and speed. It was clear from the outset that every Peapack-Gladstone Bank team member was professional, committed and was going to provide the highest level of service, leading to a completed acquisition of the business and the property. Andrew Glatz and the Bank's SBA team, along with Michael and his commercial lending team, honored timelines, forecasts, and worked with the tenacity necessary to overcome obstacles and bring the project to a successful conclusion. We're delighted to be working with such an exceptional group of Bankers.
