ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, C1 Bank announced the unveiling of their new Client Service Vehicle, affectionately named the "C1 Bankmobile." C1 Bank will debut the vehicle at this evening's Tampa Bay Buccaneers Official Draft Party happening at Raymond James Stadium from 6PM to 8PM. C1 will have bankers on site to discuss the bank's products and services as well as take part in the festivities prior to the announcement of the Buccaneers top overall NFL draft pick.
Originally developed as a disaster recovery vehicle, this 45 foot long, 18 ton, custom Freightliner truck was designed with the help of Rob Bowen from Rob Bowen Design Group and built by MBF Industries, Inc. of Sanford, Florida, with interior millwork by T2theS.
"Our goal was to mimic the C1 Bank experience in a mobile setting. Not just in terms of style, but in creating a unique, client centric experience anywhere the C1 Bankmobile can travel," said Trevor Burgess, President & CEO.
The C1 Bankmobile features two exterior Diebold ATMs as well as the Diebold In-lobby Teller machine located within a customer service area adorned with terrazzo floors and mirror tiled walls. The C1 Bankmobile also boasts high definition televisions, video boards, and fluorescent green lighting mounted along the exterior and roofline of the vehicle.
"I'm thrilled to have this as another tool that we can use to better serve Florida's banking needs," added Burgess. "In an area so susceptible to natural disasters I felt that it was our responsibility to be prepared to provide banking services to the communities we serve, no matter what the location or condition."
Aside from disaster recovery, the C1 Bankmobile will be used at sporting and community events throughout the state. C1 Bank also plans to utilize the vehicle as a community outreach tool, hosting financial literacy seminars, banking basics classes, and providing ATM services to fulfill the banking needs of a wide range of communities.
