Ascendia Bank to open new branch in Oradell; its 5th branch is 2nd location in Bergen County

Ascendia Bank, a 100-year-old northern New Jersey financial institution formerly known as Glen Rock Savings Bank, announced plans Tuesday for a new branch in Oradell.

Located at 550 Kinderkamack Road, the branch marks Ascendia Bank’s fifth overall and second in Bergen County.

Featuring two drive-up windows and a walk-in ATM with 24/7 accessibility, the new 3,300-square-foot branch was formerly occupied by a credit union and was chosen in part for its history of housing successful financial institutions. A grand opening ceremony is being planned for August.

For Ascendia Bank, the expansion comes atop a string of milestones and new offerings. Last year, the bank celebrated its 100th anniversary servicing northern New Jersey residents and businesses and, this past November, it opened a spacious new headquarters featuring a dedicated mortgage lending center.

This year, Ascendia Bank has also enhanced its suite of mobile banking services, allowing customers to open new accounts, deposit checks, pay bills, monitor account activities and even apply for mortgages via a streamlined smartphone app.

“The new Oradell branch is yet another example of our recent growth” Ferdinand “Fred” Viaud, CEO and president of Ascendia Bank, said. “Oradell is an ideal community for our fifth branch, and we look forward to meeting the banking needs of residents and business owners in the town and its surrounding areas.”
