Nissan and BankPlus
A High-Performance Partnership
In June of 2002, BankPlus was chosen by Nissan North America, Inc. to provide on-site banking services at its new vehicle-manufacturing plant in Canton, Mississippi. The plant opened in May of 2003 and manufactures the Nissan Quest van, full-size Titan pick-up truck, Pathfinder Armada SUV, Altima and the Infiniti QX56 SUV.
The full-service banking office inside the Nissan plant provides employees an array of banking services, including checking and savings accounts, mortgages and personal loan services. BankPlus also offers special mortgage packages for Nissan employees to encourage home ownership in central Mississippi.
"BankPlus competed against several other banks for the Nissan account," and CEO Bill Ray said, "one reason for his bank's selection was the similarity in commitment between BankPlus and Nissan in recruiting and retaining quality employees, and in encouraging community involvement."
"Another factor," according to Ray, "was the premium that BankPlus places on customer service."
"BankPlus is known for its commitment to customer service that goes beyond traditional banking relationships. We believe, instead, that we're a financial partner with all of our customers," Ray said. "Nissan places a premium on customer satisfaction as well, and felt that our approach would be the best for its employees. We are excited and honored to join with Nissan in this venture."
As added conveniences for Nissan employees, suppliers and vendors, several ATMs were placed in and around the facility and a new full-service office, with extended drive-thru hours from 7 am-7 pm, Monday-Friday, was opened , just south of the Nissan plant, in Gluckstadt.
BankPlus is committed to build on this High-Performance Partnership with the over 4,000 employees working at the Canton plant. In fact we are so proud of this partnership, our CEO bought the first Infiniti QX56 sold in Mississippi.
