Join us for a Ribbon Cutting! 

A ribbon cutting ceremony is set for Tuesday, January 10, 2023 at 1:30 p.m. for Blackhawk Bank & Trust’s revitalized FastBank location at 301 W. 4th Street in downtown Milan, IL.


The FastBank branch first opened in April 1973 as a drive-thru based facility. Now, the location has been updated to feature three Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs). These ITMs use a combination of ATM and video technology to offer a virtual version of person to person banking from the comfort of your vehicle.


In addition to offering enhanced banking technology, the project also added a renewable energy source with the installation of solar panels. The energy generated at that location alone will power the ITM facility as well as Blackhawk Bank & Trust’s Main branch directly across the street.


“Updating our FastBank location to include ITM technology just made sense. We are now able to offer some of the latest banking technology, while still providing the traditional, in-person banking experience right across the street at our Main Bank. Between the two facilities we’re able to meet the evolving needs and desires of our customers,” said Jim Huiskamp, President of Blackhawk Bank & Trust.
