West Bromwich Building Society is a UK building society, with its headquarters in West Bromwich, in the West Midlands of England. It is a member of the Building Societies Association. It was the official club sponsor of West Bromwich Albion F.C. for seven seasons from 1997–2004.
Since 1978 it has been based within purpose-built headquarters on West Bromwich High Street. However, on 16 June 2010 plans were unveiled to relocate to new facilities in the All Saints area of the town during 2012.
Each year it supports a local charity and encourages staff to be involved in this. An example of a sponsored charity is Acorns (sponsored 2012).
