CSB Expands To Central Location

FINDLAY—As a way to enhance its services in the most efficient way possible, Commercial Savings Bank is consolidating its existing Findlay locations to a central branch at 1660 East Tiffin Avenue.

The move will enhance efficient delivery of all products and services—both business and personal–and permit all staff to be housed in one location.   The 201 East Lincoln Street branch is expected to cease operation in early spring and all existing customer accounts will then be handled from the Tiffin Avenue location.

According to Robert Beach, President and CEO, the existing Tiffin Avenue branch is centrally located in Findlay, has ample parking, provides ATM service and will be easy for customers to access.

“A lot has changed in the banking industry since we opened the doors at the Lincoln Street branch in 2000.  There have been numerous changes in technology and product delivery,” Beach said. “The central location increases efficient delivery of products and services for our customers.

“We remain totally committed to our customers in Findlay.  We will continue to provide the Simply Better service our customers have come to expect,” Beach said.

CSB, which started serving the Findlay area in 1992, is selling the Lincoln Street building to The State Bank and Trust Company.  The agreement is subject to both parties obtaining regulatory approval and meeting other conditions related to the property.   It is anticipated the transaction will close early in 2015.
