Horizon Bancorp Announces Lafayette Community Bank is now Horizon Bank


lcbMichigan City, IN (September 25, 2017) – Horizon Bank announces Lafayette Community Bank in Lafayette Indiana and Horizon have put the final touches on their merger. With the completion of this union, Horizon Bank’s branch network has expanded to sixty offices throughout northern and central Indiana, southern Michigan and Ohio.


On Monday, September 25th all Lafayette Community Bank signs have been changed to Horizon and systems integration is complete. All Lafayette Community Bank customer accounts have been transferred to Horizon with no action required on the part of the customer. In order to make the transition as smooth as possible for Lafayette Community Banks’ customers their checks, direct deposits, payments, and account numbers have also remained unchanged.


“We are excited about this new partnership and look forward to providing expanded services as well as maintaining the commitment of service Lafayette Community Bank has throughout the years to the community of Tippecanoe County,” said Craig M. Dwight, Horizon Bank’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.


As part of this consolidation, Horizon has retained all the retail branch personnel at all four branches so former Lafayette Community Bank customers will have familiar and friendly faces available to assist them with their banking needs.

“Customers can now do their banking at any Horizon branch they choose in northern and central Indiana as well as our branches in southern Michigan – giving them greater access and convenience,” stated Dwight. Dwight further commented, “This partnership will enable these branches to offer robust product offerings as well as higher lending limits to better serve the Lafayette area.”
