About Us

We Simplify Banking. Armor Bank recognizes the frustration of unnecessary red tape many big banks make you deal with constantly. More and more banks have increasingly slow responsiveness, excessive layers of decision-making, and just drag their feet on everything. That is why Armor Bank exists.

In 2017, as the banking environment continued to become less personal and responsive, the Armor Bank brand flourished. Our leadership recognized many people do not want to deal with excessiveness big bank hassle and Armor Bank became the anti-big bank option it is today.

We are committed to giving customers a real community banking choice where you can still talk to your banker and get timely responses to your banking needs. We are bankers who care.

Armor Bank is focused on providing to its customers three primary things:

Exceptional Customer Service

In a day where customers can do so much of their banking away from a branch, we provide the products and services you need to make your life easy.
