Maui County FCU breaks ground on new headquarters
WAILUKU — On Dec. 9, 2020, Maui County Federal Credit Union (FCU) broke ground on the future site of its Wailuku branch and headquarters in Kehalani Village Center.
The new building will be more than double the size of its current Wailuku branch and main office and replace the Wili Pa Loop location. The building is anticipated to be completed in mid-2022.
“When we moved into our current Wailuku location in 1998, we had roughly 6,000 members and nine employees. We never dreamt that we would need space to accommodate more than 30 employees,” reminisces Gary Fukuroku, Maui County FCU president/CEO.
“This new building will enable us to be more efficient in serving our nearly 20,000 members, allow us to centralize our consumer loans and human resources personnel who are currently housed in a separate location, and position the organization for future growth.”
Maui County FCU engaged NewGround, a St. Louis-based architecture, design and project management firm to design and build its new Wailuku branch and headquarters.
The new 26,183-square-foot location will feature a drive-up ATM, safe deposit boxes and open-ended cash bars to better serve members. When completed, the building will be able to accommodate up to 90 employees and have ample parking with 130 stalls.
“This is a great day for Maui County,” shared Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino.
“The growth and success of this Maui-owned financial institution is really very impressive. Plus, this important construction project provides quality jobs for Maui people, so it’s two very good things at one time.”
Maui County Federal Credit Union was originally established in 1937 to serve the needs of Maui’s county, state, and federal government employees and their families. It is the largest credit union on Maui with 55 employees serving nearly 20,000 members throughout the County of Maui.
Maui County FCU revised its field of membership to a community charter. Now, anyone who lives, works or worships within the County of Maui is eligible for membership.
Maui County FCU continues to offer its members a wide variety of financial services and products with branches in Kahului, Lahaina and Wailuku. For more information, visit mauicountyfcu.org.
