On January 14, 2017, Horizon Community Credit Union will become part of Fox Communities Credit Union. This consolidation provides Horizon Community Credit Union members the added convenience of 18 additional offices from Green Bay through the Fox Valley area and to the Lakeshore in Manitowoc/Two Rivers, along with more ATM locations, and expanded products and services.
Pat Josephson, President of Horizon Community Credit Union says, “The reason Horizon approached Fox Communities was based on opportunities for both our members and the Horizon team, who will all remain with the credit union. The core values of each of the credit unions are very similar. Having additional offices, products, and services for our membership was vital. It is important that we continue to grow and stay competitive with the ever-changing needs of our members.”
Fox Communities Credit Union President Greg Hilbert stated, “Fox is excited to welcome the members of Horizon Community Credit Union. Both credit unions share a deep understanding of our commitment to members and the communities we serve. This partnership shows how credit unions continue to work together to improve and expand product and service offerings for all members.”
In September of 1932, Horizon was chartered for the employees of the Hoberg Paper Company, who later became Charmin, then Procter and Gamble. When the credit union became community based in 2003, it changed its name to Horizon Community Credit Union.
Fox Communities Credit Union first began as Combined Locks Credit Union, in 1937, when it served employees of the Locks Mill. The name was changed to Fox Communities Credit Union in 1987.
Fox Communities and Horizon Community are financial cooperatives, which means, they are owned by their members who bank with them. Together, the credit union will be serving over 87,000 members!
