Let’s Get Started
To move forward with the design and construction of our downtown branch, we were required to wait for approval from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Our team has waited in anticipation for months.
We are now proud to announce the FDIC has approved our branch application! Now we can begin the design and planning process.
New Beginnings In A Historic Space
Our bank, first chartered as First National Bank of Ochiltree, grew with the expansion of the North Texas and Santa Fe Railway. From our humble beginnings in 1907 to our expansion throughout the greater Texas Panhandle, we’re continuing to work on our mission to become the areas preferred community bank.
We are excited for the next step in our growth as a bank – offering our services in downtown Amarillo. As occupants of the tallest building between Fort Worth and Denver, we will provide convenient financial services to customers both new and old.
FirstBank Southwest will occupy about 8,000 square feet, approximately half of the existing space on the ground floor, and use it to create a beautiful space for our customers and employees.
We will release more information about our design plans as we near our tentative move in date. Timelines can change quickly, so we cannot release a definitive open date. Our vision is for the branch to be open during the first half of 2019.
We will update you as we progress!
