Celebrating 85 Years of Service

First Branch

Pictured: Our first branch in Orangeburg, SC.

2019 marks a special anniversary in South State’s history. We will be celebrating 85 years of service to our customers and communities. Though a lot has changed since 1934, one thing has not – the value we place on building relationships with our customers and our communities.

Throughout 2019, we will be celebrating both our customers and the dedicated bankers who have made South State one of the fastest growing regional banks in the Southeast.

We’ll highlight eight decades of change in banking.  From opening our first branch in Orangeburg, SC as First National Bank to the first ATM to the many advances in technology that have made banking more accessible to customers including online banking, mobile banking and digital payments.

We’ll also share fascinating stories about our history, the communities we serve and most importantly, our customers.

We are grateful for everyone who has supported South State throughout this journey and look forward to many more years of serving you.

Please follow us on social media for to follow our 85thanniversary stories including banking and customer spotlights, trivia and more! You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest.
