Iron Horse Caisson

Iron Horse Caisson, Wilmington, MA, TSB small business clients


(Wilmington, MA) – Like many small business owners, Iron Horse Caisson owners Jim DeFeo and Gina Daniels needed a commercial loan to help their expanding business grow. The Wilmington Massachusetts couple also needed a bank that recognized the importance of the unique and invaluable service they provide to others in their time of need.

They found that bank in The Savings Bank, a mutual saving bank headquartered in Wakefield, Massachusetts.

“When Jim and Gina first met with our Lending team, we were intrigued and impressed by the service they provide, not only to military veterans, but also to motorcycle enthusiasts and their families,” Nicholas Kefalas, VP Commercial Banking of The Savings Bank said.

Iron Horse Caisson provides a nontraditional alternative to the standard limousine hearse and is the only Veteran-owned, independently operated motorcycle hearse service in the Northeastern United States. Using a custom fabricated 2015 Harley-Davidson Road Glide with a right-side mounted side car frame, the company works directly with funeral homes to provide seamless service that reflects and celebrates the life the deceased lived and loved with dignity and pride.

“After learning more about Iron Horse Caisson and their successful business, we knew that this was a company that we wanted to help,” Kefalas continued. “Simply put, they honor the rider and their love of motorcycles.”

According to the owners, Iron Horse Caisson is non-political, non-denominational, non- territorial and unaffiliated, and anyone can hire the motorcycle hearse for a funeral service.

Operators are respectfully dressed and arrive ready to ride in any weather. Depending upon weather conditions, and working in coordination with the funeral director, Iron Horse Caisson welcomes family and friends to “Stands Up” and share the ride.

“The Savings Bank and its commercial lending team worked with us to secure a business loan that will allow us to celebrate and pay respect to the departed loved one,” the owners added. “As a result, Iron Horse Caisson continues to offer one last run to celebrate a passion for freedom, adventure and life.”

“Iron Horse Caisson is a unique concept to our market area, and we were happy to help the DeFeos achieve their financial goals with the loan we provided – we wish them great success as they continue to grow their business”, said Pete Johnston, The Savings Bank’s SVP / Senior Commercial Banking Officer.

The Savings Bank’s Commercial Lending team welcomes local businesses to contact them at (800)-246-2009 to discuss their specific business banking needs.
