Greensburg, IN (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
Farm Credit Services of Mid-America today held their ground breaking event for the new office in Greensburg, Indiana, affirming the agricultural cooperative’s commitment to agriculture and fostering growth in rural America.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held at the Farm Credit office in downtown Greensburg and was attended by several Farm Credit board members, advisors and staff as well as Farm Credit builders and contractors. Members of the chamber and Mayor Gary Herbert were also in attendance. The new Greensburg office will be located on the same lot as the current building at 1512 West Main Street.
Staff, Advisors and Board Members of Farm Credit, along with the Mayor and staff of the Chamber were at the January 16 groundbreaking.
Hollie Bunn, Farm Credit’s regional vice president in southwest Indiana, said the new office will represent the latest in technology and design and will be able to accommodate a growing staff. “The location of our office was perfect in terms of customer access, but the current building really didn’t project the image or have the space or technology needs to keep pace with an ever-evolving agricultural market.” Bunn said the old building will be demolished to make way for the new 3,800 square foot facility which should be open by mid-2012.
