PORTLAND, ME--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) -  The Bank of Maine today announced it is celebrating its 178th anniversary. The Bank serves Maine's communities with strong capital, innovative products, and unparalleled service.

"As we celebrate 178 years in the banking business, we are proud of our Maine roots, strong history and bright future," said John W. Everets, Chairman and CEO of The Bank of Maine. "We are committed more than ever to our mission of delivering exceptional customer service and strengthening the communities we serve."

The Bank of Maine was founded in 1834, and began with a single office in Gardiner. Over the years, the Bank grew organically and through acquisitions and now serves customers from York to Fort Kent with 32 banking centers.
