Fort Knox Federal Credit Union announced today it will host the Grand Opening of its new branch office located at 2345 Gary Farms Blvd. in Bowling Green on August 25 at 3 p.m.
“The Gary Farms Blvd. location will be our first branch office in Bowling Green and a tremendous convenience for our many members we have here and in surrounding counties,” said Ray Springsteen, President and CEO of Fort Knox Federal. “We are very excited about coming into just a vibrant and growing community such as Bowling Green,” he added.
The new Bowling Green Branch will be full-service featuring mortgage and loan processing, free ATM services, and in-branch teller service along with the latest in technology including online and mobile banking. Also, the branch will feature extended service hours in the drive-thru with teller assisted transactions. “Our new branch will accommodate members however they prefer service,” Springsteen added.
Fort Knox Federal, now the largest Kentucky-based credit union in the state, was founded in 1950 by 10 civilian employees at Fort Knox and $1,000 in initial capital. “We have come a very long way since then as we now serve more than 95,000 members and have more than $1.4 billion in assets. Although the Credit Union has grown, our basic mission and business model has not changed. We are still dedicated to improving the financial lives of our member-owners as a financial cooperative. We continue to provide innovative and lower cost financial services to individuals and businesses,” Springsteen said.
Coming to Bowling Green was a clear opportunity for the Credit Union to expand its membership base and to offer comprehensive financial services to the residents of Warren County and beyond. In addition to offering mortgage, home equity, auto and residential construction loans, Fort Knox Federal has commercial loans and accounts. Individual checking accounts are free with no monthly services fees and free customizable text alerts.
When the Bowling Green Branch opens, Fort Knox Federal will operate 17 branches throughout central Kentucky ranging from Jefferson County to Danville and now Bowling Green.
