Our History

PyraMax Bank was originally founded August 10, 1895, under the name of South Milwaukee Savings Bank. In May 2000, a merger between South Milwaukee Savings Bank and Mitchell Savings Bank officially formed PyraMax Bank.

The name emerged from the combination of wanting to retain the pyramid-shaped logo of South Milwaukee Savings Bank — hence, “Pyra” — while ensuring our clients that they would still receive the same maximized service — hence “Max” — that they always valued for 100-plus years. The pyramid was chosen for its strength, stability and symbolism for age. The points on the pyramid represent strength, experience and commitment, increasing from left to right to represent positive growth.

At PyraMax Bank, we offer the advantages of a community bank with the financial power of a larger institution. With more than $486 million in assets and six convenient bank branches throughout southeastern Wisconsin, we still offer the unequaled power of local decision making. This combination of strong, stable financials and control explains why people call PyraMax Bank “Your Financial Force.”
