Telhio hosts ribbon cutting for New Northland Village Branch
COLUMBUS, OH (January 13, 2021) — Telhio Credit Union opens their newest branch in Northland Village with a ribbon cutting ceremony held on Tuesday, January 5. This new location on 1795 Morse Road in Columbus has been under construction for a $1.5 million expansion and is now open to the public.
What was previously a drive-thru only location with walk-up window service is now a spacious state-of-the-art building with community spaces and robust banking technology.
Telhio has incorporated integrated teller machines (ITM) that can authenticate its members’ identity by a scan of their palm. This specific technology is the most up-to-date biometric feature available, making banking easier and safer than ever before. ITM’s can dispense coins, vary the denomination of dollars withdrawn as cash, print out statements, and even allow members to make payments on loans or mortgages through the machine.
“As our member base continues to grow in Columbus, we wanted to provide better access to Telhio’s in-branch banking services,“ said Leslie Bumgarner, President and CEO. “We are excited to ring in the new year by opening our Northland Village branch to the community and inviting them to enjoy our newest innovations and commodities.”
The Northland Village Telhio location also provides a convenient location for members of other credit unions that belong to the Credit Union Service Centers network of shared branches.
