Business Of The Month – Atomic Credit Union


Atomic Credit Union was founded in Pike County, Ohio in November of 1955. The field of membership began to quickly change throughout the 1990s and expanded into chartered counties. Anyone who lived, worked, worshiped, or attended school in those counties could “join”, i.e. open an account. Atomic Credit Union has 15 branch locations currently, and 2 more are opening in Fall 2023. Atomic offers mortgage loans, business services, Ag services, auto loans, recreational vehicle loans, credit cards, merchant services, and so much more! Atomic Credit Union also operates the largest student-run credit union program in the country, operating in 58 schools in Ohio! Throughout all the growth and challenges, Atomic has sustained its core values and “Member First” philosophy by offering innovative products and services while maintaining an environment of trust, value, relevance, and personal service!
