Mansfield-based FCCB recently announced plans to open their third Lancaster County office in Ephrata.
The Bank has already received approval from the Federal Reserve Bank and anticipates approval soon from the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities. It plans to open the new office, located at 3630 Rothsville Road, this spring.
The Ephrata location brings the FCCB branch network to a total of 32. The other Lancaster County offices include a branch in downtown Mount Joy and an in-store branch in Weaver’s Store, Denver.
“As a Community Bank, we understand the vital role we play in keeping small communities healthy for the businesses who operate there and the people who work, live and play there,” said Randall E. Black, FCCB CEO and president. “We are excited to bring our brand promise to Ephrata and the surrounding communities, along with providing additional services and convenience to our already established customer base.”
FCCB has experienced significant success in its market expansion efforts. Since its entry into southern Pennsylvania with the acquisition of The First National Bank of Fredericksburg in December 2015, the bank has opened two offices in Lancaster County and one in Kennett Square in New Castle County. It has also acquired The MidCoast Community Bancorp, extending its reach into Wilmington and Dover Delaware. In the 6 years since the start of their expansion, the bank’s assets have grown by $1.22 billion or 132%, since year ended December 31, 2014, the release said.
