Scranton-based Peoples Security Bank & Trust said it is now in the Schuylkill County market with the recent opening of a new business center in Orwigsburg.
The Blue Mountain Business Lending Center will also serve surrounding Berks and Carbon counties.
The 1,750-square-foot office is at 705 W. Market St., Suite 8 in Orwigsburg.
It will offer a range of financial products and services including business loans, personal mortgages and cash management.
Neal Koplin, executive vice president of Peoples Security Bank & Trust, said this is the latest expansion for the bank.
“Commencing in 2015, our bank successfully built a presence in the Lehigh Valley that today includes three locations and more than $400 million in loans,” he said.
Denise Ressler, Peoples Security Bank & Trust senior vice president, who will oversee the operations of the office, commented on further growth in the Schuylkill region.
“While we’re keeping an eye to the future and expanding our offerings, our priority during this inaugural year is to partner with small and mid-sized businesses,” Ressler said.
With the addition of the Orwigsburg business center, Peoples Security Bank & Trust has community banking 28 locations in Pennsylvania and New York.
