It's part of the bank's €11M investment across its branch network
The Bank of Ireland in Naas will be upgraded this year,as part of the bank's plans to invest €11.5m million across its nationwide branch network in 2023.
The planned network investments include refurbishments and enhancements to the branch network, upgrading of branch services including ATMs in a number of locations, and ongoing maintenance works.
Additional works as part of the €11.5m investment will also include the installation of new external and internal ATMs in a range of branches, and the improvement of facilities for colleagues in over a dozen branches.
As part of this investment, Bank of Ireland also plans to install energy efficient LED lighting in each of its 169 branches in 2023, including all 6 of its Kildare branches, in Naas, Newbridge, Kildare Town, Maynooth, Leixlip and Celbridge.
This will achieve over 50% in energy savings from a reduction in lighting energy consumption, as the organisation looks to become more energy efficient and reduce its total energy consumption.
Commenting on the planned investment in its Kildare branch network, Susan Russell, Director, Retail Ireland said: “Our branch network of 169 locations across Ireland, including the 6 branches we operate in Kildare, is a very important part of how we serve our customers - whether that be for routine cash, cheque and coin transactions or more detailed conversations about loans, mortgages and pensions.
“That’s why we continually invest in this network, and 2023 will be no exception.
I’m especially pleased that our Naas location will be upgraded during this year, and that we are also making further investments in ATM technology in our branches nationwide," she added.
