NBF re-launches top branch after revamp
Fujairah, July 13, 2010
The National Bank of Fujairah (NBF), a full services corporate bank, has re-launched its main branch in Fujairah after renovations for the last three months.
The 12,000 sq ft branch, inaugurated in 1994, was officially reopened by Sheikh Saleh Bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, chairman of NBF.
The flagship of NBF’s 12-branch network across the UAE, the Fujairah branch now sports a more modern ambience with its wooden panelled walls, clean lighting and circular meeting rooms, a statement said.
There were also other improvements, such as the installation of more customer teller counters and waiting areas, including a separate one for female clients.
The corporate banking and trade finance offices have also been enlarged, while provisions are currently being made for a drive-through ATM before the end of the year.
“Our proposition as an established full-service bank with strong trade finance credentials has always put us in good stead to support Fujairah’s aspirations,” Sheikh Saleh said.
“By upgrading existing infrastructure such as our main Fujairah branch, we are putting on a show of strength in the marketplace while firming up the foundation to further consolidate and grow our core businesses,” he added.
Vince Cook, NBF chief executive, said that the branch re-launch is in line with the bank's strategy of fully exploiting its retail network.
“This is our showcase branch and this investment reflects our commitment to further nurturing our roots,” he said.
“Fujairah continues to develop its status as an export and trading hub, so alongside the refurbishment of our premises we are also upgrading our efforts to cater to the needs of the growing business sector,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
