The 1.8 million-member, $26.7 billion State Employees' Credit Union's upgrade of its statewide network of ATMs is making jobs for North Carolinians, the credit union touted Monday.
The Raleigh-based credit union maintains 1,100 ATMs around the state that it provides fee-free to the public. The machines are to be image enabled to take deposits, according to a credit union spokesperson.
The upgrade is being done by the Ohio-based ATM's manufacturer Diebold at its plant in Greensboro, N.C.
“Our focus is North Carolina and its citizens – it’s where we live and work and who we serve,” observed SECU President Jim Blaine. “It only makes sense for State Employees’ Credit Union to do business with folks who operate in our state.
“Diebold employs approximately 150 North Carolinians in Greensboro, a place where we also have 10 credit union branches and thousands of members, some of whom are part of the Diebold family,” Blaine said. “Our contract will help sustain those jobs and any win for North Carolina is a win for SECU.”
Diebold President/CEO Andy Mattes said, “We established our Greensboro, N.C. facility about five years ago with approximately 10 employees. Today, Diebold Greensboro is a full-production facility, shipping products internationally to Canada, Mexico and Latin America, and is a core component of our global supply chain and manufacturing process.
He added, "One hundred percent of SECU’s Diebold ATM order was built in some capacity here at the Greensboro facility. For a global company with a presence in more than 90 countries, that’s a very unique scenario—and we’re proud to be able to provide this opportunity to the Triad region.”
