Diebold, Incorporated today announced that Banc One Corporation has purchased more than 1,000 of its 1064i cash dispensers as part of an ongoing plan to boost installation of cash dispensers at retail locations nationwide.
The machines, which feature a thermal printer able to print high- resolution graphics and a color monitor, are being installed in Circle K convenience stores in the southern and western portions of the United States. About half of the machines are already installed and the remainder will be in place by the end of 1997.
“This order represents the latest step in our ongoing partnership with Banc One,” says Thomas J. McBride, director of worldwide product marketing for Diebold. “Diebold continues to provide innovative self-service solutions to support our customers’ strategic initiatives.”
Over the last several months, Banc One has been increasing its network of Rapid Cash automated cash dispensing machines through contracts with major retailers. With the expansion of their ATM program, Circle K joins several other large retailers in adding the cash dispensers in their stores.
“By partnering with a significant number of retailers, we can provide convenient access to cash for consumers and small business owners throughout the United States,” said Gregory L. Ford, convenience banking manager for Banc One Corporation.
The Circle K branded convenience stores are marketed by Tosco Marketing Company, the retail marketing division of Tosco Corporation (NYSE: TOS). Tosco Corporation is the nation’s largest operator of company owned convenience stores across the country.
Based in Columbus, Ohio, Banc One Corporation is a $113 billion bank holding company that operates 1,200 bank branches in 12 states. Common equity in the company was $9.9 billion at the end of September 1997.
