IN line with the strategy to extend the reach and offer a wide range of financial services ranging from saving to investments to clients, the FNB Bank has opened its new multi-million rand premises in Bloemfontein.

Located strategically at the heart of Bloemfontein, and easily accessible for both clients and the more than 400 employees, the office accommodates all major divisions of the bank under one roof. Named the First Place, Bloemfontein, this site sees the bank strengthen its presence and customer reach within the Mangaung Metro and the region.

“We strongly believe in the economic growth potential of the city of Mangaung. Our role as a proudly South African organisation extends further than banking alone. We see this building as a tangible expression of our commitment to this city and region,” said Stephen Gooch, FNB Free State regional head.

He said the new 8284m² building consolidates seven offices in the region and now accommodates all FNB, WesBank, RMB and Ashburton businesses. It is owned and developed by the Kavod Trust.

Gooch said phase one of the development was funded by the bank. The building has been designed to be fully functional for the bank’s purposes and already stands as a beautiful landmark with five levels that can accommodate more than 400 employees.

“The Free State is one of the richest agricultural provinces in the country and has the potential to make an even greater contribution to the economy. We encourage corporate South Africa to continue investing in the sustainable and responsible development of Mangaung and the Free State at large.”
