May 16, 2023

ARCHBOLD, Ohio, May 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lars Eller, President and CEO of F&M Bank in Archbold, Ohio, announced the completion of the relocation of the Company’s Auburn, Indiana office. The new full-service office opened on May 15, 2023 at 406 Smaltz Way, Auburn, Indiana 46706.

The relocated F&M office is conveniently located just off I-69 in the expanding part of Auburn, an area that is experiencing ongoing growth and development. The Auburn office is the first F&M Bank office to feature the Company’s new branding and refreshed logo.

The new and improved office space is less than 3 miles from the previous F&M office location and will offer the latest banking technology to serve customers. The office features over 3,000 square feet of space with several offices, a drive-up, and lenders on-site to accommodate F&M’s ongoing growth and commitment to the Auburn community. “The new branch clearly shows F&M’s focus on supporting families, farmers, and businesses. With two branches in Dekalb County, F&M remains committed to helping the entire county prosper,” said Andy Baker, Regional President.

To celebrate the relocation, the Bank will be holding an Open House on June 6th, 2023 for leaders in the community, customers, and neighbors.

The former office location at 403 Erie Pass, Auburn, Indiana 46706 is now permanently closed but will have an ATM available for use through the end of 2023.
