Centra Credit Union Breaks Ground On New Edinburgh Location

COLUMBUS, IND. (May 21, 2021) — Centra Credit Union held a ceremonial groundbreaking for its new Edinburgh branch on Tuesday, May 18, 2021. The new branch is being constructed one mile north of the current Edinburgh location, near the JayC on Highway 31.

Edinburgh Branch Sales Manager Amber Foster, Centra Chief Sales Officer Chris Bottorff and other Centra leaders were joined by representatives from NewGround and The Koetter Group as well as Edinburgh leaders, including council members and department heads for the Town of Edinburgh.

“It is a blessing having a branch in the Town of Edinburgh and getting to know our local Members. The people of Edinburgh are one of many reasons why my staff and I enjoy coming to work,” Foster said. “I am excited to be given the opportunity to deepen Centra’s roots in the Town of Edinburgh and become more involved in the community.”

Centra’s upcoming Edinburgh location was designed by NewGround, an architect specializing in the design of financial institutions. The building is being constructed by The Koetter Group.

“We’ve outgrown our current location, and we are grateful to the Town of Edinburgh for their support as we move forward on this project,” Centra Chief Sales Officer Chris Bottorff said. “Part of our vision is to create value for our communities, and this new location will offer more opportunities for our team to better serve our local Members.”

The new building will be approximately 28,000 square feet with four offices, two teller pods for four tellers, a waiting area, and other back-office spaces. The drive-thru will have three lanes with separate Interactive Teller Machines. The project is expected to be completed near the end of 2021, and the current Edinburgh branch team will relocate to the new facility soon after completion.
