Learn About Norway

Our Colorful Story

Norway Savings Bank was incorporated in 1866 and opened its original building on Main Street in Norway, Maine, in 1894 (it's still standing today). We moved to our current downtown location in 1957.

From the beginning, we've been a mutual community bank dedicated to bringing sophisticated financial expertise and warm, friendly service to our Maine neighbors. Our philosophy and colorful approach have made Norway unique in the marketplace. We're more confident than ever that we're putting Norway Savings on the right path — by putting our customers, employees, and communities first.

Our team has worked hard develop an achievement and support culture that has been built around empowering our employees. As a result, Norway Savings Bank was recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Maine by the Society for Human Resource Management’s Maine State Council in 2007 and 2008. In 2011 and 2013, Norway was also awarded the Gold-Level Well Workplace Award by the Wellness Council of America (WELCOA). This award distinguishes Norway Savings Bank as one of the healthiest companies in America.

Our Colorful Brand Commitment

We believe that the most important things a bank can provide are Solutions. Prompt, effective, personalized solutions to any and all financial challenges facing Maine people and businesses. We call them Colorful Solutions because we know you’ll find they do more to brighten up your life than solutions from other banks. We’re from Maine and we understand the needs of Maine people and businesses. With a group of empowered employees, we have the ability to respond to customer problems within 24 hours and to find the right solutions as quickly as possible.

We have worked hard to showcase our colorful brand in a unique way in the market. As a result, Norway earned the Financial Marketing Excellence Award from the American Bankers Association for its “Colorful Solutions” brand campaign in 2009.
