For more than 50 years, May Plant Credit Union has been a fixture in the Kershaw County area. Now, the oldest credit union in Kershaw County is taking a giant step towards realizing its goal as a full partner in local communities.
“Because we now serve a larger geographic area, a name change is required to more accurately reflect the membership that has developed over the last few years,” May Plant Credit Union CEO Scott Conley said in a press release. “Our goal is to be a part of our members’ lives; to help them have a healthy financial life.”
Effective April 1, MPCU will be known as Mid Carolina Credit Union. The name change has no impact on any member accounts -- fund security remains top priority.
Mid Carolina Credit Union is proud of the 52 year history with INVISTA, what was once the DuPont May Plant and its other SEGs and business partners. Far from being a move away from these roots, Mid Caroline officials said the change is in reality a proactive step towards becoming a better partner with its current members and the broadened field of membership in Kershaw and Richland counties.
“Rest assured the credit union has not been bought out,” officials said. “Members will continue to enjoy superior service and we’ll soon provide more facilities for added convenience. Rates on deposits and loans will remain competitive while receiving service from the same smiling people. Mid Carolina Credit Union’s growth and increased resources will allow it to serve its members even better.
Mid Carolina Credit Union is a full-service credit union with over 98 million in assets, serving about 14,000 members with three area locations. For more information call 432-8521 or visit its new website at www.midcarolinacu.com beginning April 1.
