FBFC Turns 160!
We have been making lives better in the communities we serve since 1859. That makes us older than the Civil War, older than the Great Depression, older than radio, television and the internet, and maybe even older than Keith Richards (no one really knows)! Please enjoy this page and the slivers of history we’ve included to show you where we came from. There are even opportunities for you to help us give money away, and win some money for yourself. Peruse away!
Hear From The Community
My family has been banking with FBFC since 1979 when we moved here from Florida. I was 8 years old, and excited to open a savings account for my "piggy bank" money. Here we are, 40 years later, and I am still a loyal customer. I kept the tradition alive, and took my own daughter to open her first savings account as a little girl, and she too remains a loyal customer. FBFC focuses on supporting the community, putting customer service first, and keeping up with modern banking trends, all while maintaining that small town bank atmosphere that makes us all feel like family. I would not put my financial trust in any other bank. Congratulations on 160 years! Well done!
The Gables of Germantown has been working with First Bank Financial Centre for over 8 years. We couldn’t ask for more caring and helpful banking professionals. Not only have we developed a wonderful business relationship, but friendships as well. On behalf of the Gables residents and staff, we couldn’t be happier with our FBFC team!! We love being a part of their "Fill the Bus" for school supplies every year and the Christmas Present Wrapping Charity Events! We are so fortunate to have First Bank Financial Centre for our on-site banking and our residents know they are in good hands. Thanks to all of you and congratulations on your 160th anniversary!!
Whenever I walk into the Bank everybody makes me feel like family and I have the feeling they really mean it. Service is excellent. Never in almost 14 years, did I get the feeling of being rushed, I have only the best things to say about Debbie DesRoches and everybody that works here.
Happy Anniversary, FBFC!
It’s no wonder you’ve been in the business for 160 years – you are the best at what you do! Typically I am someone who prefers the convenience of a drive-thru, or I take advantage of the ability to call-ahead so as to “get in and get out” of my destination quickly. But that is not the case when I head to the bank because I look forward to stopping in to visit my First Bank friends – particularly the Hartland branch where I am always greeted by name, with a smile, a handshake and sometimes even a hug! In all of my interactions with First Bank, whether it be lending, opening an account, or attending a FBFC-sponsored event, I have been treated with the utmost respect and professionalism. Hats off to you, FBFC!
My wife and I have been FBFC customers for many years and it is very easy to say good things about the experience.
We are customers that frequently use the Hartland and Brookfield offices and always treated with not only terrific and timely service, but with a smile and a feeling of being made welcome and appreciated.
It is nice to have a relationship like that where customer service is a fact instead of just a slogan.
Congratulations on your anniversary! Keep up the great work.
