CURWENSVILLE – Beginning Monday, CSB Bank will be no more. The financial institution will officially change its name to Northwest Savings Bank.
The Warren-based Northwest announced the acquisition of CSB Bank and Penn Laurel Financial Corp., the holding company for CSB, in January.

At 8 a.m. Monday, CSB Bank will officially become Northwest Savings Bank.
When the merger was announced, Wesley M. Weymers, president and CEO of Penn Laurel, stated, “We are extremely excited with the prospect of becoming part of the Northwest Bancorp team. Northwest has developed a superb reputation in the industry as a community banking organization that delivers quality products and services to its customers.”
Customers of CSB Bank should have or will soon be receiving new checks, ATM cards, payment books and other bank documents in the mail.
