Ag Credit/Country Mortgages, an agriculture lending cooperative serving farmers and rural residents and agribusinesses in Northern Ohio has moved their Tiffin branch to 2500 West Market Street.
“Our former office served our cooperative well since the 1970’s but we simply outgrew it,” said Neil Jordan, CEO. “From approximately $15 million of volume in the early 1980’s, our Tiffin team now manages over $105 million of farm loan, lease and home loan volume, so we simply needed more space.”
The cooperative purchased the 5,000 square foot building in Sept. 2012 and officially opened on Dec. 2 after extensive renovation. Technicon Design Group, of Ottawa designed the new office space and Clouse Construction was the lead contractor.
“We are very pleased with the location, the building and its construction,” Jordan said. “The people at Clouse Construction are real professionals, timely and true craftsmen. We couldn’t ask for better people to work with.”
A ribbon cutting ceremony and open house was held on Thurs, Dec. 12. It was attended by local officials, members of the Seneca County Chamber of Commerce, Ag Credit members and Country Mortgages customers and the Ag Credit/Country mortgage team.
“It is great that Ag Credit/Country Mortgages is making an investment in our Tiffin community that greatly enhances the western corridor,” said Aaron Montz, mayor of Tiffin.
The Tiffin branch currently houses seven employees: Assistant Vice President, John Orians; Account Officers, Craig Buskirk and Ashley Burger; Home Loan Originator, Mandy Stacy; Customer Service Representatives, Sandy Coppus, Paula Duran, and Linda Dye.
The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment.
