Mid Penn Bank, subsidiary of Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: MPB), has plans under way to construct a branch office in Halifax, Pa.
The bank has secured land on Peters Mountain Road in Halifax Township, otherwise known as Route 225, which serves as a major travel route for the area. The bank will apply for the necessary township and regulatory approvals with the intention of developing and constructing a full-service branch.
“We are excited to announce our intention to return to the Halifax community with the establishment of a full service retail location that will serve all members of this great community,” said Mid Penn Bank President and CEO Rory G. Ritrievi. “Mid Penn Bank has been headquartered in and has served Upper Dauphin County for almost 150 years. Having a full service retail location in Halifax, one of the community jewels of Upper Dauphin County, just makes sense. We have patiently waited for the right situation and timing, and we feel we are there now. We will now focus our energy in getting the necessary regulatory, state and township approvals to make this a reality as quickly as possible.”
As the largest bank headquartered in Dauphin County, Mid Penn currently has 21 branches serving Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Luzerne, Northumberland and Schuylkill counties. The bank is expanding both in Central Pennsylvania and across the state, with plans to open a branch in New Holland, Lancaster County, on May 1 and a branch in Orwigsburg, Schuylkill County, on June 1 (pending final regulatory approval). Mid Penn is also party to a merger agreement with The Scottdale Bank & Trust Company, which operates five branches in western Pennsylvania.
