BCB Community bank

BCB Bank

BCB opened its doors in 2000 with just one branch in Bayonne, NJ. After 10 years of success and growth, BCB acquired Pamrapo Savings Bank, also headquartered in Bayonne, but with reach into neighboring communities. Soon after this expansion, BCB acquired Allegiance Community Bank, headquartered in South Orange, NJ. BCB continued to grow by acquiring Indus American Bank in 2018, and continued expanding their footprint in 2019 with the opening of a branch in River Edge, NJ, as well as a second branch in Hoboken, NJ. BCB continues to organically grow in 2020 with the opening of a branch in Newark, NJ.

BCB has always considered the community to be its primary focus. While growing, the Bank never lost sight of its mission to serve the people, and businesses within its neighborhood. BCB Employees are entrenched in the community, many employees serve on boards of Non-Profit Organizations, and volunteer countless hours of service. It is this philosophy that has made BCB Bank the successful institution it is today.

Today, BCB Bank has 31 branches throughout New Jersey & New York, with more than 400 employees, and assets in excess of $2.9 billion.
