Jonathan Diaz, Branch Manager of the new Partners 1st Federal Credit Union Waynedale location cuts the ribbon at the Grand Opening on November 29.
On November 29th, Partners 1st Federal Credit Union held a Grand Opening for their new location in Waynedale. Located near the BMV at 6731 Old Trail Road, the new branch has a completely remodeled interior and a coat of fresh paint on its exterior. When the credit union moved into the vacant space, previously occupied by Old National Bank, Partners 1st sought to invest in the Waynedale business district and to assist the community through their financial products and services.

“Being new to the Waynedale community, we look forward to partnering with other businesses and charity entities where possible. Our motto is ‘Part of your community, Part of your tomorrow’ and this is something we take to heart.” said Carla Bienz, President and CEO.

As a full-service financial institution, Partners 1st Federal Credit Union offers savings, checking and lending products from debit and credit cards to auto loans, business loans, mortgages and more to the community. They also offer Saturday hours at their branches as well as 24/7 account access through their state of the art online and mobile banking systems.

Unlike a bank, Partners 1st Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial institution. They do not maximize profits for the benefits of a few shareholders but return earnings to their members through highly competitive loan and deposit rates. By doing so, Partners 1st provides an affordable alternative for both its current members and those communities they serve.

Partners 1st Federal Credit Union has 7 other locations in Fort Wayne, one in Huntington and one in Marion. They also have 16 additional locations in Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and Georgia.

65 years ago, Partners 1st Federal Credit Union was founded in Fort Wayne, Indiana, by 7 Magnavox employees with a vision, mission and a caring heart. They are still headquartered here, make their decisions locally and support their local communities. They look forward to continued growth in Waynedale and beyond. The credit union plans to do this through personalized service, affordable products and innovative solutions for consumer and business members.

Stop by the new Partners 1st Federal Credit Union branch at 6731 Old Trail Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46809 to congratulate them on their new location, or for any of your financial needs. All Indiana locations are open Monday thru Friday 9-5, Saturday 9-12 noon. You may also learn more about Partners 1st Federal Credit Union by visiting their website at www.partners1stcu.org
