First Union Corp. of Charlotte, N.C., said it has completed its acquisition of Waterbury, Conn.-based Center Financial Corp.
Center Financial's Centerbank units opened Nov. 14 as branches of First Union Bank of Connecticut.
First Union offices in Ansonia, Hamden, North Haven, Wallingford, and West Haven were consolidated at the close of business into nearby Centerbank offices in the same towns.
Centerbank's signage was changed to the green diagonal First Union logo.
The merged bank, First Union Bank of Connecticut, with $6.7 billion in assets and $4.6 billion in deposits, now has 104 traditional branches, seven supermarket branches, and 135 ATMs in the state.
"We are committed to providing our customers superior products and superior service," said Thomas H. O'Brien Jr., president of First Union Bank of Connecticut.
First Union Corp. has assets of $134 billion, 2,000 branches, and 2,300 ATMS. Its market stretches from Hartford, Conn. to Key West, Fla., and includes 12 states, and the District of Columbia.
