New branch features SMART ATMs for convenient banking
Sponsored by American Savings Bank
September 2020 marked the grand opening of American Savings Bank’s new Kalihi branch. During these challenging times, ASB is committed more than ever before to making banking easy and convenient for its customers. The branch is ASB’s newest in Hawaii, and officially opened for business on September 8.
The Kalihi Branch is led by branch manager Laura Gathalian and assistant branch manager Robelyn Sejalbo. Ample free parking is available directly in front of the branch, with the entrance located on Gulic Street. The branch also has new state of the art features including SMART ATMs which allow you to make envelope-less deposits and receive receipts via text or email.
As part of its commitment to the Kalihi community, ASB donated $3,000 to We Are Oceania, a local nonprofit that serves Hawaii’s Micronesian community and is headquartered at St. Elizabeth Church in Kalihi. We Are Oceania has seen a sharp increase in the need for services, especially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. ASB’s donation will support outreach and assistance programs for the Micronesian community.
The Kalihi Branch was constructed by general contractor Ralph S. Inouye Co., Ltd. and designed by architecture firm InForm Design. The building features a contemporary design with high ceilings, ASB’s signature Kalo Wall created by Sig Zane Designs and View Smart Windows, digitally connected glass that intelligently tints to control glare and heat to create a more comfortable environment for customers and teammates.
All ASB branches continue to follow enhanced health and safety procedures, including daily cleaning and disinfecting, providing hand sanitizer and wipes to customers and teammates, using Plexiglas barriers and requiring face coverings and social distancing. Branches continue to offer Kupuna Hour during the first hour of each day, Monday through Friday, which is prioritized for seniors (ages 60 and up) and at-risk individuals, along with an accompanying caregiver or family member, as needed.
