About Us

With hundreds of financial options available, it can be difficult to know where to turn. As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, you can trust us to give you the best options for your family's financial future.

Who We Are

Our Credit Union was founded in 1952 to serve the employees of the Brunswick Corporation Marion, VA operations. We expanded our field of membership in 1993 to include employees of several Select Employee Groups and their family members. In 1997, we became a community chartered credit union serving Smyth, Wythe, and Washington counties. Kern's Federal Credit Union merged with our credit union in 1998.

Our credit union has grown from seven charter members to over 4,000 members! Thank you for being a dedicated member and actively supporting your credit union!

It is the mission of Mountain Empire Federal Credit Union to make a positive difference in the financial lives of our members and the communities we serve. We are committed to providing the best possible financial products, service, and technology at competitive rates while maintaining the Credit Union's long term financial stability.
