Investing in Customers and Communities for 85 Years

For 85 years, we’ve been committed to delivering exceptional service and the best financial solutions, while investing in the customers and communities we serve.

Thanks to our loyal customers, we’ve grown from a South Carolina bank to a bank that serves more than 700,000 customers across the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia. From introducing our first ATM in 1981 to building a network of more than 150 ATM and branch locations, we’re now just around the corner, all across the South, and we have online and mobile offerings to help you achieve your goals – anywhere you are.

Significant Milestones in South State History Doors Open in 1934 Moed HQ to Columbia, SC in 2003 Started Online Banking in 2005 Rebranded to South State Bank in 2014 South State Enters Virginia

While it’s hard to remember a time without ATMs, debit cards and online or mobile banking, we’ve always navigated the changing landscape of banking and technology advancement to meet customer needs, offering the right combination of high-touch personalized service and banking expertise with high-tech capabilities, enabling customers to bank on their terms.

A lot has changed in 85 years, but one thing hasn’t – our commitment to customers and our desire to build strong relationships. It was true when we first opened our doors in 1934, and it’s still true today.

To our customers and communities – thank you for allowing us to serve you for eight decades!
