NORWICH – NBT Bank plans to extend its reach into New England this year with the acquisition of four branches of a Massachusetts bank.
NBT President and CEO Martin Dietrich announced Wednesday that the Norwich-headquartered banking company intends to acquire Legacy Banks’ locations in Pittsfield, Lee, Great Barrington and North Adams. All four are located in Massachusetts’ Berkshire County.
“We are pleased to have this opportunity to deliver our broad array of financial services to customers in a new market,” Dietrich said in a press statement. “Berkshire County is contiguous to New York’s Capital Region, where we have a strong and growing presence. We look forward to the opportunity to build upon the foundation this branch acquisition will provide for us in western Massachusetts.”
