FirstMerit is a banking institution with more than 160 years of history. We have been a vital force in the lives of our customers and communities since 1845.
Each individual bank that has joined our corporation brought with it the practice of Community Banking - local management, local decision-making and local community boards. That principle continues today as our corporate philosophy. We can deliver all the products and services of a big bank, yet meet the needs of our individual customers and communities in a personal way.
