GenoaBank to add Sylvania office
GenoaBank will invest $2.4 million in Sylvania Township to build its seventh location in Northwest Ohio.

The new location will be at 5501 Monroe Street. A groundbreaking is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 30 at 2 p.m. The branch is expected to be opened for business in July.

“We are eager for the opportunity to expand the GenoaBank brand.  This Sylvania branch will provide access for both existing and newly-won customers”, stated Martin P. Sutter, president and CEO. “This investment provides tangible proof of the strength of our organization and our commitment to growing our brand to meet the needs of our customers.”

The new branch location will include three drive-up lanes, a drive-up ATM and will be a full-service banking facility with generous office space available to meet with customers and to accommodate their commercial lending, investment, and mortgage financing needs. 

GenoaBank, founded in 1902, has assets of $269 million and operates branch offices in Genoa, Elmore, Maumee, Millbury, Oregon, and Rossford.

GenoaBank last week sponsored a field trip for 120 area students to Imagination Station through the Adopt-a-School program.

Fifth-graders from Lake Middle School took their learning beyond the classroom with the science center’s hands-on exhibits, activities and demonstration.

For the past two years, GenoaBank has supported Imagination Station’s Adopt-a-School program by providing designated funds for the following school districts: Genoa, Lake, Maumee, Northwood, Rossford and Woodmore.

Schools are facing fiscal challenges, budgets are being cut and field trips are being canceled. The Adopt-a-School program gives corporations and foundations a way of directly impacting the children in their community by providing them with field trips to Imagination Station.

Teachers from public, private, parochial and charter schools in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan can apply online at or call 419-244-2674.

Just the fax: Fax items before Wednesday, noon to The Workplace at 419-836-1319, email to or send to The Press, Box 169, Millbury, OH 43447.
