Mid Carolina Credit Union hosted a groundbreaking event for their new two-story 12,000-square-foot main office on Tuesday. The Lugoff facility will be located next to Heritage Chevrolet at 841 Highway 1 South. This is in response to the growth Mid Carolina has experienced in recent years.
During the ceremony, dignitaries, credit union employees and members of the board of directors were present to share the news and turn the ground. In making the announcement, Mid Carolina Credit Union President and CEO, Scott Conley said, “We are excited about our expansion; this building signifies our continued strong growth and further cements our commitment to serving members and the community. Unlike a large bank that is driven by profits for shareholders, Mid Carolina Credit Union is a financial cooperative that is owned by its members, so we are committed to improving their financial position. Whether it’s through money-saving products, services, infrastructure or corporate responsibility, everything Mid Carolina Credit Union does is for the positive impact of its members and community.”
The new facility, which replaces its former location on the InVista plant property, is expected to be completed summer 2018. The first floor will house a full-service flagship branch to serve local members, including an ATM. The second floor will have office space for executive staff and several back-office departments. The facility was designed by Consultants and Builders, Inc. and will be the first to feature the credit union’s new modern retail design.
The InVista location will become an administration building.
