Two Indiana-headquartered financial institutions are marking construction of new branches. Merrillville-based Centier Bank will cut the ribbon Thursday on its first branch in Fishers, which will be its 60th in the state. Fort Wayne-based 3Rivers Federal Credit Union says it will begin construction later this summer on its 16th branch, which will be located in Decatur.

Centier says the Fishers branch includes 2,400 square-feet and has ATM and drive-up capabilities, as well as amenities including free Wi-Fi and a coffee bar. Thursday's 4:30 p.m. ribbon cutting ceremony will include a business reception and be attended by Chief Executive Officer Michael Schrage.

The new 3Rivers branch is slated to open next spring. Until the permanent, 2,800 square-foot location opens, officials say 3Rivers has opened a temporary office nearby. The bank says it has 800 customers in Adams County, but until now, hasn't had a physical presence. Fort Wayne-based Strategic Growth Advisors is overseeing design and construction. The branch will be a full-service location. Chief Executive Officer Don Cates says "we are very excited to be making this new investment in Decatur, at a time when others have decided to leave. 3Rivers member growth in our community branches has averaged over 12 percent in the last year, and we see the need for a consumer/retail financial institution in our communities. As the credit union has surpassed $1 billion in assets and continues to grow, having a physical location in Adams County will allow us to better serve existing members and give us the opportunity to serve more new members in this community."
