The Bank of Missouri will hold a ground-breaking ceremony Friday, June 4, as construction begins on its new operations center in Perryville. The ceremony will take place at 8:30 a.m. at 916 N. Kingshighway, Perryville, Mo. The new Operations Center will stand adjacent to the current branch located at the same address. The entrance of the existing bank branch will undergo changes to move it farther from the stoplight for better access.
The new building will stand 3 stories tall, with each floor measuring approximately 17,000 square-feet. About 50 to 60 employees will occupy the top two floors.
"This state-of-the-art facility will allow us to continue serving our clients with the latest technology and convenience," said David Crader, CEO of The Bank of Missouri.
The building contractor is Zoellner Construction Co. of Perryville, Mo.
The Bank of Missouri's other Perryville branch, located at 18 W. Ste. Maries St. on the square, will continue to serve as an office building for bank staff and the drive-thru will remain open to bank customers.
The Bank of Missouri is an independent community bank locally owned and operated with over $800 million in assets and locations in Perryville, Jackson, Cape Girardeau, Marble Hill, Springfield, Ozark, Republic, and Columbia, Missouri.
