Buran stated, “We are excited to expand upon our success in Nassau County with a new headquarters to support our continued growth and provide efficiencies and synergies that result from the majority of our staff being under one roof.  The county’s highly educated workforce, as well as the commitment by local government and community entities, weighed favorably in our decision to expand in Nassau County. We worked closely with the Town of Hempstead Industrial Development Association on programs to support us in bringing over 250 employees to their town.”

Buran added, “The RXR Plaza facility is a quality work environment that reflects our desire to provide the best for our employees.  Easy access, comfortable surroundings and employee friendly facilities including child care weighed heavily in our decision making. This convenient location also allows us to stay connected with our branch network in the New York metro area. We recognize the role of the branch is changing and we must adapt to stay current with the evolving trends. Our RXR Plaza branch showcases a new branch model that leverages technology with highly trained sales staff to provide a superior customer experience. It provides the added convenience of full-service banking to all of the individuals and businesses located in the building and the surrounding areas. We look forward to meeting with the individuals, and businesses that work in this building and discussing the financial solutions that are right for them.”

This will be Flushing’s third branch located in Nassau County and continues the bank’s planned expansion of its branch network, bringing the total number of branches in the metropolitan area to 18.  Flushing Bank’s RXR Plaza branch will be offering special promotions and giveaways during the months of May and June. The RXR branch will be open five days a week with extended Grand Opening hours of operation on Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
