BOYERTOWN PA – Boyertown area residents have offered “a warm response” to the fifth and newest branch office of Diamond Credit Union at the intersection of Route 100 and County Line Road in Douglass Township, company President and Chief Executive Office John Faust reports.

The office has been open almost two months since an April ribbon-cutting. The credit union’s $1,000 donation to the Boyertown Relay For Life – presented during the ceremony – will be put to work Saturday (June 21, 2014) as that fund-raiser to benefit the American Cancer Society gets under way at Boyertown Community Park on South Madison Street.

“Everyone at Diamond is incredibly excited to join the Boyertown community,” Faust said. “We look forward to making many new friends in the area.”

The branch office covers 4,100 square feet and features a remote teller system, three drive-through lanes, a drive-up automatic teller machine, two loan booths, an inside kiosk for members to access online banking, and a children’s play area. It currently employs nine people.

Members of the building team who played a significant role in the construction – Jeff Evans of PFB Architects, John Thies of Jettco Designs, architect Courtney Mitchell, and representatives of E.R. Stuebner Contractors – all were recognized by Faust and Diamond Board of Directors Chairman Patrick Austin during the ribbon-cutting.

“I am blown away by the tremendous job our building and construction team has done on this branch,” Faust noted.

Anyone who lives, works, attends school, or regularly conducts business in Berks County or the Tri-County area can become a member of Diamond Credit Union, according to its staff. Diamond, which maintains its headquarters in Lower Pottsgrove Township, is the 18th largest credit union in Pennsylvania. It holds more than $415 million in assets and serves more than 47,000 members.
