Our History

The National Bank of Commerce (NBC) has enjoyed a long and prosperous history.
The bank was originally chartered as Union National Bank of Superior on February 7, 1934. It replaced the already closed United States National Bank. It officially opened for business on April 16, 1934.

Only a year and a half later, Union National Bank purchased the American Exchange Bank on December 31, 1935. Five years after that, the bank took another important step by changing its name and location when it purchased the National Bank of Commerce of Superior, and changed its legal name to National Bank of Commerce in Superior. In September 1972, NBC purchased the Poplar State Bank and its branch in Solon Springs, Wisconsin, and established both as branches.

Then, in 1979, NBC began construction on its new bank building in Superior. Built at 1127 Tower Avenue, it was just down the block from the previous location. After NBC moved into the new bank in 1980, it continually grew each year. But in 1998, the bank took the necessary steps to ensure unlimited growth. A holding company was established—NATCOM Bancshares, Inc.

Only two years later, a new location was opened at 1314 E Superior St. in Duluth, Minnesota. This office would be NBC’s first outside the state lines of Wisconsin. Since then, NBC has continued to grow with its newest locations opening in Superior—Midtown at 2822 Tower Ave. in March 2003 and in Hermantown at 4105 Richard Ave. in December 2004.

NBC purchased Community Bank in November, 2008, and merged the two banks and their staff. In 2019 Republic Bank joins NBC, creating a local bank with the lending power to make even more possible.
