West­pac ATM in Pahiatua will be re­moved later this month.

“This is af­ter a reg­u­lar re­view of our network which looked at sev­eral fac­tors, in­clud­ing the num­ber of peo­ple us­ing each ATM and the age of each ma­chine,” , says Heather Shiels, se­nior man­ager, ex­ter­nal re­la­tions HR and cor­po­rate af­fairs at West­pac Bank.

“Our West­pac cus­tomers are able to use our nearby branch to make over­the-counter trans­ac­tions,” she said.

“We have also re­cently dropped the fee charged to West­pac NZ cus­tomers who use other ma­jor bank ATMs. This change means our cus­tomers can now use more than 2400 ATMs na­tion­wide to make cash with­drawals — four times as many as be­fore — with­out in­cur­ring a fee when us­ing their West­pac NZ EFTPOS or Debit card. There are two other ATMs within 250m of the West­pac ATM which our cus­tomers are able to use.

“We are also con­tin­u­ally in­vest­ing in new and im­proved on­line and mo­bile bank­ing so­lu­tions in re­sponse to cus­tomer de­mand,” she said.

She was asked if the bank would con­sider set­ting up an ATM in Eketa¯ huna due to the clo­sure of the credit ex­change.

“We are aware West­pac has no plans to put an ATM into Eketa¯ huna,” Will Hine, West­pac NZ me­dia re­la­tions man­ager said.

The West­pac ATM in Pahiatua will be re­moved at the end of this month.
