Mid Carolina Credit Union broke ground for its new two-story 12,000-square-foot main office Monday. The Lugoff facility will be next to Heritage Chevrolet at 841 Highway 1 South.
In making the announcement, Mid Carolina Credit Union President and CEO Scott Conley said, “We are excited about our expansion; this building signifies our continued strong growth and further cements our commitment to serving members and the community.”
The new facility, which replaces its former location on the InVista Plant property, is expected to be completed in summer 2018. The first floor will house a full-service flagship branch to serve local members, including an ATM. The second floor will have office space for executive staff and several back-office departments.
“This is an exciting day for Mid Carolina Credit Union. We have been serving Lugoff and the Kershaw County area for years, but this new facility will allow us to deepen our roots in the community,” Greg Nettles, Mid Carolina Credit Union chairman, said in a release. “When complete, the branch will allow us to offer new technology and expand our services, providing a more visible and convenient location for the community to do business with us as we continue to deliver quality financial products and services.”
The facility was designed by Consultants and Builders Inc. and will be the first to feature the credit union’s new modern retail design. The InVista location will become an administration building.
“Mid Carolina Credit Union’s future is bright. With a commitment to their internal values and a focused strategy for future growth, the credit union is prepared to help people afford life now more than ever,” Julian Burns, Kershaw County Council chairman, said in a release. “We know that credit unions and other small businesses are the heart of our economy and we are blessed to have such a community focused organization committed to the Kershaw County area.”
