FISHKILL, N.Y.—M&T Bank recently began construction of a new energy-efficient branch on Route 9W in Newburgh. The new flagship office is part of M&T’s $10 million investment in the Hudson Valley to offer expanded services and added convenience to area customers.
Demolition of the old branch on Route 9W in Newburgh is now complete. A ground-breaking for the new building was held at 5075 Route 9W on Nov. 29.
The new branch features an award-winning design and will be constructed to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. LEED is a rating system established by the U.S. Green Building Council to distinguish high-performance buildings with less impact on the environment.
Other new developments during the fourth quarter of 2011 as part of M&T’s continuing Hudson Valley Project include:
- New ATMs installed at over 40 area locations. The advanced ATMs are capable of accepting envelope-free check deposits while showing the customer an image of the check on the screen and printing an image of the check on the customer’s receipt.
- An ATM sweepstakes featuring the historic Mohonk Mountain House resort in New Paltz. Any customer who completes an envelope-free check deposit at M&T’s new ATMs will be automatically entered to win one of numerous prizes, including a grand prize of $1,500 and a weekend for two at Mohonk Mountain House resort. The contest ends Feb. 20, 2012. Full rules are available at www.mtb.com/hudsonvalley.
- Faster, streamlined transaction process, due in large part to M&T’s new check processing center at its Fishkill Regional Headquarters.
“These additional projects are part of M&T Bank’s continued investment in our local communities and our ongoing effort to make banking more convenient for both businesses and consumers in the Hudson Valley,” said Rob Brown, senior vice president and retail banking manager for M&T in the Hudson Valley.
In addition to the new flagship branch in Newburgh, M&T is making major renovations to branches in Hopewell Junction, Fishkill and Wappingers Falls. Significant upgrades have also been made at 28 additional branches in Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan, Orange and Putnam counties, with the majority of work completed by local contractors.
