National Penn Bancshares has officially opened its new Reading Area Business Center.

The ceremony was led by National Penn President and CEO Scott V. Fainor at the building's location in Spring Township.

Fainor had announced in 2012 that the bank would relocate its Boyertown headquarters to Allentown and open a business center in Berks County.

"We developed a forward-thinking relocation plan to improve employee collaboration, enhance customer service and maintain our strong focus on growing the National Penn franchise," Fainor said.

The bank completed construction of the 48,000-square-foot building in the fall and more than 130 employees were relocated to the facility.

The three-story building includes commercial, retail, finance and operations teams and also serves as the headquarters for National Penn Investors Trust Co.

National Penn officially opened its new Allentown headquarters at Two City Center last month and is locating 275 jobs to Downtown Allentown, where it will occupy floors six through 11 of the newly constructed building.

National Penn Bancshares Inc., with about $8.6 billion in assets, operates 119 National Penn Bank branch offices comprising 118 branches in Pennsylvania and one branch in Maryland.
