First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union, the #1 ranked credit union in PA by Forbes and leader in financial services innovation and inclusive banking in the Lehigh Valley, recently celebrated the opening of its new 5,000 sf, two-story, flagship Trexlertown Financial Center featuring a dedicated small business center. First Commonwealth continues to expand and invest in the community, bringing a new level of choice to consumers and businesses to Bank for Good, a more inclusive, personalized, contactless and convenient way of banking. The new Trexlertown Financial Center is the largest of First Commonwealths eleven Lehigh Valley financial centers, and is adjacent to its corporate headquarters campus.
Representatives from First Commonwealth partnered with the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce to host a live-stream, virtual ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday. Located in the heart of Lower Macungie and a short walk across the parking from its corporate headquarters, the financial center boasts a second story – home of its Small Business Center, expert personalized service, certified financial wellness counselors and a warm and friendly banking environment that features three ITMs (Interactive Transaction Machines), extended drive-up service hours (8 am- 8 pm) and contactless banking.
“We’re proud to continue to invest in the Lehigh Valley and enhance our presence in the communities that we serve. As the largest credit union in the Lehigh Valley and the #1 ranked credit union in PA by Forbes, we’re changing lives and strengthening our communities every day through financial wellness and empowerment. We are thrilled to be a part of the Lower Macungie community and offer an entirely new, inclusive banking experience to those who live and work in this thriving hub,” said Donna LoStocco, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Commonwealth.
First Commonwealth is also a leader in Corporate Social Responsibility in the Lehigh Valley, working tirelessly to empower positive change and serve the evolving needs of diverse Lehigh Valley communities.
