Mid Penn Bank, subsidiary of Mid Penn Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: MPB), has received approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to open a retail branch at 1021 Centre Turnpike in Orwigsburg.
The office will open as Miners Bank, a division of Mid Penn Bank, in early June of 2017.
“We look forward to expanding the Miners Bank branch network with our new office in Orwigsburg,” said Mid Penn Bank President and CEO Rory G. Ritrievi. “The communities of Schuylkill County have continued to embrace us, and we feel strongly that the residents, businesses and organizations of Orwigsburg can greatly benefit from our style of community banking. Our Schuylkill County team, including area banking veterans Mark Ketch and Karen Kenderdine, understands our customers’ needs and delivers the local service and expertise they deserve.”
It is anticipated that the Orwigsburg location will employ three to five team members to fulfill personal banking, business banking and lending needs.
Mid Penn currently has 21 branches serving Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Luzerne, Northumberland and Schuylkill counties. In addition to the new branch in Orwigsburg, the bank has plans to open a branch in New Holland, Lancaster County, on May 1 and to begin developing and constructing a branch in Halifax, Dauphin County, in 2017 (pending township and regulatory approvals). Mid Penn is also party to a merger agreement with The Scottdale Bank & Trust Company, which operates five branches in western Pennsylvania.
