Heritage Federal Credit Union Announces Purchase of The Elberfeld State Bank

Newburgh, IN – Heritage Federal Credit Union and The Elberfeld State Bank announced today that they have received all necessary regulatory and shareholder approvals relating to Heritage’s purchase and assumption of the assets and liabilities of The Elberfeld State Bank.

Our thanks to the ESB Board of Directors, executive officers and, especially, the shareholders for approving this purchase and placing their faith in Heritage as their financial partner for the future. We have been working diligently with Curtis Ritterling and the rest of the Bank’s team to ensure a smooth transition. As the conversion progresses, we will continue to offer consumer loans, mortgages and commercial loans with the low rates and low or no fees that are always available to our members. Our strong lineup of digital banking solutions, including online loan applications, will add to the speed and convenience of banking with us. We look forward to becoming a part of ESB communities and to helping the people there grow and prosper.”
Curtis Ritterling, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Elberfeld State Bank, said: "We are very excited about our new partnership with Heritage because of the expanded opportunities it brings to our customers, our employees, and our communities. Both our existing customers and Heritage members will benefit by this partnership through the combining and upgrading of our products and services and the increased number of branch locations. I believe this partnership is a great fit, as we are both deeply engaged in the communities we serve and have a strong commitment to our customers’ and members’ financial well-being.”
