September 28, 2015 01:43 PM

Michigan City, Indiana-Horizon Bancorp (NASDAQ: HBNC), the parent of Horizon Bank announced the completion of the integration of the business and operations of the former Peoples Federal Savings Bank.

Horizon executed its integration plan on the weekend of September 26, 2015 that included systems conversion and new signage. As a result, the customers of both banks can now conduct their banking business at any Horizon Bank branch throughout Northern and Central Indiana as well as Southwest and Central Michigan. The total number of offices expands to 46 within Indiana and Michigan for the combined banks.

While the Peoples Federal Savings Bank name will change, Horizon pledges that the dedication to remainfocused on customers' financial success, and being ever mindful of the communities served, will remain unchanged. When customers walk into one of the former People’s locations, they will still talk to someone from their hometown — a local banking professional who knows the community. 

Along with expanded branch and ATM locations, customers will have the opportunity to select from a fuller range of loan options, increased access to their accounts via telephone and mobile banking, along with a suite of services now available to business customers that can greatly enhance their banking relationship.
