Farm Credit Mid-America, an agricultural lending cooperative serving farmers, rural residents and agribusinesses throughout Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, opened a new office in Lebanon at 1212 S. Hartmann Drive.
An open house and ribbon cutting ceremony was held Aug. 8 and attended by local officials, community members, Farm Credit leaders and Farm Credit customers. State Rep. Mark Pody and Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto were both in attendance and offered their congratulations to Farm Credit on the new office.
“Farm Credit has deep roots in this area,” said Jack Swanson, regional vice president of Farm Credit. “The former Lebanon office was built in 1965. We have grown tremendously since then, and this new facility will allow us to continue to grow and serve our customers even better. The new office has expanded space, more private meeting rooms, updated technology and a more convenient location. We’re proud to celebrate our rich history here and look forward to a bright future.”
The Lebanon Farm Credit office serves customers in Macon, Smith, Trousdale and Wilson counties. Throughout 2014, Farm Credit will continue to build and renovate offices across its four-state area.
