Horizon Consolidates Branches in Three Rivers Michigan

January 17, 2017 02:32 PM

Michigan City, Indiana — Horizon Bank announces an updated, single location for its Three Rivers, Michigan branch. The facility, located at 1213 West Michigan Avenue, is already undergoing construction to accommodate the combined staff members.

“We’re adding three new offices, and three new workstations to the Michigan Avenue location,” says Jeff Gatton, the bank’s Southern Michigan Market President.

Horizon Bank has been operating two locations in Three Rivers. Since the two facilities are just over a mile apart, Gatton says it was time to work more efficiently. “We decided to invest in the Michigan Avenue location,” he notes, “because it has better visibility and overall traffic flow, making it more convenient for our customers. Plus, there’s an ATM available there.”

Brussee/Brady has been contracted to construct the roughly 400 square-foot addition for the upgraded branch. Work will be completed in three phases, to allow the branch to remain open throughout construction — and the project is slated for completion at the end of March 2017. Beyond adding more space to the facility, Gatton says that existing finishes will be upgraded and enhanced for a more cohesive and modern look.

Once construction is finished, Horizon Bank will move out of its Portage Avenue location and bring that facility’s team over to West Michigan Avenue.

“With the consolidation of the two offices, we will be able to better serve our customers by offering safe deposit boxes, ATM services, mortgage lending, and commercial lending,
all at one facility,” Gatton says. “In the past, those services were housed at one of the two offices, but not both at the same time.”

In the meantime, customers may visit either location in Three Rivers until April 14.
