KUCHING: Selayang Member of Parliament William Leong Jee Keen officially opened OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Bhd’s (OCBC Bank) 33rd branch in the country in the affluent and vibrant township of Anggun City, Rawang.

The Rawang branch is only the second OCBC Bank branch in the northern part of Selangor, after Ijok. It comes complete with a Premier Banking Centre and over 1,000 safe deposit boxes, a service that remains a rarity in Rawang.

With this OCBC Malaysia now has 33 conventional and 13 OCBC Al-Amin Islamic banking branches nationwide, making 46 in all.

Also, present at the official opening ceremony were State Assemblyman for Rawang Chua Wei Kiat, OCBC Bank chief executive officer Datuk Ong Eng Bin and OCBC Al-Amin Bank Bhd chief executive officer Tuan Syed Abdull Aziz Syed Kechik.

According to Ong, the Rawang branch augments the Bank’s presence in north Selangor, effectively filling the void that remained in the northern corridor its coverage of the Klang Valley.

“Rawang is one of the key remaining strategic market centres where OCBC Bank has always wished to be present; so, today’s opening represents a significant milestone in our network delivery and service excellence journey,” he said.

The three-storey OCBC Rawang branch is located at 118 Persiaran Anggun City, Pusat Komersial Anggun City, Taman Anggun, 48000 Rawang and is designed to be staffed by up to about 38 staff, including 8 business banking and 5 premier banking personnel.

It opens daily from 9.30am to 4pm, Monday through Friday, and offers the full range of OCBC Bank’s products and services.

Apart from the over 1,000 safe deposit boxes and Premier Banking Centre, the offerings here include a self-service banking lobby, retail and teller services and a business banking centre. The fully-automated area features cash and cheque deposit machines, alongside automated teller machines (ATMs).

It provides 24-hour services and is fully covered by CCTV and protected round-the-clock by security personnel, seven days a week.
