Strengthening its ties to the military, Indiana's Crane Federal Credit Union is opening its third branch of the year on Nov. 5 at the U.S. Army's Camp Atterbury. The $331 million Crane has also won Pentagon approval for expanded ATM coverage at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center.
"We've been fortunate in these economic times to be able to continue our branching program," said Bryan Myers, vice president/sales-lending.
In a formal statement, Odon, Ind.-based Crane said it was "honored to be selected as the financial services provider" for the Camp Atterbury branch. Formally known as the Joint Maneuver Training Center, it serves Army and National Guard soldiers deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Earlier this year, Crane opened two retail branches in Plainfield and Franklin. Crane previously maintained a branch in Plainfield following a small CU merger and the additional property "became available and so we thought we ought to take advantage," Myers said.
Crane now has 10 branches in southern Indiana and the Atterbury facililty will be its 11th.
