Diebold is a CUNA Strategic Services provider.
Earlier this year, SECU contracted with Diebold to upgrade its network of 1,100 CashPoints no-surcharge ATMs, all of which are located in North Carolina and assembled in the Greensboro facility. For SECU, the partnership was advantageous for many reasons: Diebold is a leader with technology and service, and equally as important, the company has a base in SECU's home state, the $25.1 billion asset credit union said. With the assembly for SECU's ATMs handled in Greensboro, North Carolina's work force and the local economy benefits, SECU said.
"Our focus is North Carolina and its citizens--it's where we live and work and who we serve," noted SECU President Jim Blaine. "It only makes sense for SECU to do business with folks who operate in our state. Diebold employs approximately 150 North Carolinians in Greensboro, a place where we also have 10 credit union branches and thousands of members, some of whom are part of the Diebold family. Our contract will help sustain those jobs and any win for North Carolina is a win for SECU."
"We established our Greensboro, N.C., facility about five years ago with approximately 10 employees," said Andy W. Mattes, Diebold president/CEO. "Today, Diebold Greensboro is a full-production facility, shipping products internationally to Canada, Mexico and Latin America--and is a core component of our global supply chain and manufacturing process.
"One hundred percent of SECU's Diebold ATM order was built in some capacity here at the Greensboro facility," he added. "For a global company with a presence in more than 90 countries, that's a very unique scenario. Our partnership with SECU is very important to us. For a combined 100 years, Diebold and SECU have been committed to the state of North Carolina and continuously strive to make a difference within the communities we work and live."
