About Centier Bank
Since 1895, Centier Bank has guided thousands of businesses and helped them to lay down roots across Indiana’s communities. Here in The Region, at Route 30 and the I-65 business corridor in Merrillville stands a five-story round building crowned by a golden circlet. That building is the Centier Bank Corporate Centre, which was opened in 2008 to be the headquarters for community banking here in Northwest Indiana.
A champion for Indiana entrepreneurship and economic development, Centier Bank is proud to stand with the Northwest Indiana business community as we collectively serve to drive our local economy. From conveniently-located branches in East Chicago, Whiting, Hammond, and Gary, across the Lake and into Porter County, Centier’s relationship-style banking and team of local expert helps to serve as a strong financial partner to many Region-based businesses.
The Future of Centier Bank
Working toward the future and continued expansion, Centier proudly reflects on a family business legacy, which would not be possible without the support of local communities and growing business. Since 1895, the Schrage family, who owns Centier Bank, has been a legacy of success–not merely through business, but through philanthropy that extends throughout the communities Centier serves. The bank stands firmly behind a “Not For Sale” promise, pledging to the families, businesses and communities of Indiana that Centier will continue to preserve independent, hometown banking in Indiana for years to come.
Doing Business In Northwest Indiana
What differentiates community banks like Centier from big banks with locations across the country is simple: the dollars stay close to home to help fund infrastructure, build businesses, create jobs, and support nonprofits and public services to those in need. Centier Bank employs over 950 associates, many right here in the Region and across the state. These are the same people who live, work, and play in the communities they serve. That includes associates in the on-site call center located at the bank’s Corporate Centre. When clients need assistance, they can trust that one of their neighbors is there to provide the remarkable service Centier is known for.
Centier Bank is proud to be one among the businesses that put Northwest Indiana on the map. Centier has been nationally recognized by several outlets over the years for our outstanding service and banking products. Centier Bank has also been named as the #1 Best-in-State-Banks by Forbes and awarded Bank of the Year several times by the Regional Development Company, an SBA 504 Loan Program.
It is a great honor to serve as an integral part in the quality of life across Indiana, and Centier is committed to enriching lives through financial guidance for an even better tomorrow!
