About Kalamazoo County State Bank

Our goal is to deliver unparalleled service to the communities we serve and to our most important resources, our customers.

Welcome to KCSB,

For more than a century, Kalamazoo County State Bank (KCSB) and its employees have been committed to providing exceptional financial services to our customers and loyal support to our communities.

Founded in 1908, Kalamazoo County State Bank is the oldest independently owned and operated community bank in Kalamazoo County.  The driving force that led to the bank’s formation over ten decades ago came from the Krum and Angell families.  Members of both families saw the need for hometown banking services for Schoolcraft and its surrounding communities.  Today, members of both families are shareholders and board members.  The bank’s main office is located in Schoolcraft.  The Mattawan branch was established in the early 1970s and the Vicksburg branch opened its doors in 1996.

KCSB’s goal is to provide local, reliable and friendly solutions to the individuals, families and businesses in our communities as they pursue their financial journeys.  One of the greatest advantages we can offer our customers is our status as their locally owned and operated community bank. Because we are locally owned, we are able to put our customer’s personal financial needs above everything else we do.  We are here to listen to our customers, get to know them personally, and focus on their financial success.

With over “100 Years of Caring” we strive to give back to the communities we serve, helping to make a difference for our children, our families and our businesses.  We are your local community bank. Please visit us online and in our branch offices. We look forward to serving you on your financial journey.

“I have enjoyed working at Kalamazoo County State Bank (KCSB) for over 36 years because I love what I do.  I started as a teller in 1980 while a senior in high school; transferred to the Bookkeeping department, then into the Accounting/Reporting department and in 2000 I was promoted to Officer status.  I love seeing and helping the customers when I’m a teller and I love numbers and the challenges of balancing them.  Math and accounting were two of my favorite classes in high school.  I love the fact we are an independently owned “Community Bank” that cares about the people and communities we serve.  Our mission statement is to deliver unparalleled service to the communities we serve and our most important resource, our customers.  At KCSB, you’re not a number; you’re a valued customer.”
