How We Became Us

The credit union was originally founded in 1935 as the Kohrs Credit Union.  Shortly thereafter the name changed to Oscar Mayer Credit Union after the Oscar Mayer Company purchased the Kohrs Company. It was originally located inside of the Rockingham Road plant, in Davenport, IA.  How the credit union progresses:

  • Two employees began in an office housed under the stairs at OM
  • Grover Miller was the manager from 1950′s to 1970′s. The Rockingham plant office had 600′ of space, and only offered Savings, Loans, and Christmas Club
  • Perry branch was established in 1963 in the Perry Oscar Mayer plant
  • Ray Laures was President from 1970′s to 1999
  • In 1976, Share Draft accounts were offered
  • The “Kirby Kangaroo Club” was developed. It is an existing club for kids up to age 12. Eventually it was marketed by Iowa Credit Union League and is now run by the New Mexico Credit Union League
  • 1977 – the current Rockingham office was built at 1400 Rockingham Road which enabled us to serve the OM employee family members
