Bank of Luxemburg Plans to Open Kewaunee Branch

Bank of Luxemburg has announced plans, contingent on obtaining regulatory approval, to build a new branch in Kewaunee. During construction, the bank is planning to operate a branch in temporary location, opening early 2016.

This proposed new branch will bring Bank of Luxemburg’s community-focused service closer to the many Kewaunee residents who have been Bank of Luxemburg customers for years. In addition—considering all the changes that other Kewaunee-area financial institutions are undergoing—this new Bank of Luxemburg branch will offer residents the opportunity to choose a locally owned bank for all their financial needs in the future.

Bank of Luxemburg is an independent community bank with a focus on providing a full range of financial products and hometown service to the communities served. As the only bank headquartered in Kewaunee County, Bank of Luxemburg employees enjoy serving their friends and neighbors. “The people at Bank of Luxemburg understand the Kewaunee area’s needs,” said Bank of Luxemburg president John Slatky. “In addition, we are familiar with businesses here and make all loan decisions locally. We often say we are ‘Committed to your success. See what a difference it makes,’ and we certainly are committed to making a difference in Kewaunee,” he added.

According to Bank of Luxemburg CFO Joe Mauel, “Once regulatory approval is received, Bank of Luxemburg will finalize the new branch implementation plan to serve the Kewaunee area’s banking needs. This process could be completed in 30-45 days.”

Bank of Luxemburg and Luxemburg Bancshares, Inc. have full-service banking offices in Luxemburg, Green Bay, Dyckesville, Casco, Algoma and Sturgeon Bay. The company also operates Raymond James Financial Services, offering financial planning and the sale of alternative investments to its customers in each community.

Community Banks Keep Rural America Growing


Bank of Luxemburg takes pride in serving our friends and neighbors! Our customers appreciate our hometown service and personal attention. And, as a community bank, we make our loan decisions locally with a quick turnaround times. Community banking is one very important way rural areas grow and prosper!

Just one of the many ways community banks build better communities
Washington, D.C. (April 13, 2015)—During ICBA Community Banking Month, the Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) celebrates the nation’s community banks for their unparalleled role in helping America grow by lending to local farmers, ranchers and agricultural enterprises and serving as financial first responders to the agricultural economy.
“Community banks are essential to the overall health and financial success of rural America because they provide an overwhelming share of credit to local farmers and ranchers,” said ICBA Chairman Jack Hartings, president and CEO of The Peoples Bank Co., Coldwater, Ohio. “Many community banks have been serving agricultural enterprises and family farms in their communities for more than 100 years. And because community banks are small business owners themselves, they are better able to serve their agricultural customers because they understand the local market first-hand and have highly specialized expertise in the agriculture business.”
Across the nation, community banks operate 52,000 locations, employ 700,000 Americans and hold $3.6 trillion in assets, $2.9 trillion in deposits and $2.4 trillion in loans to consumers, small businesses and the agricultural community.
Community banks have consistently been the largest provider of agricultural credit within the commercial banking sector and are often the catalysts for new and expanded business opportunities within their communities to ensure long-term economic viability and vitality. In fact, community banks provide $57 billion in agriculture loans.
“Community banks stimulate rural economies in a multitude of ways, including creating jobs, maintaining the local tax base and facilitating development of the infrastructure and public services necessary to keep rural communities vibrant,” Hartings said.
