The Timberland Timeline
1973 - Our credit union opened their doors as Riverside Employees Federal Credit Union. At the end of our first year of operation, membership had grown to 843 with $129,000 in assets. The “official” offices were above the old Riverside store #3 (currently the Giant Eagle) in DuBois.
1985 - the Board of Directors decided to change the name to Timberland Federal Credit Union to attract other companies and reflect the diverse company base it was building. “Timberland” was chosen because DuBois was once known for its timber industry, and in French, “DuBois” means “of the woods.”
2002 - Timberland Federal Credit Union expanded its operations by adding a second branch in Clearfield.
2016-18 - 2016 Your credit union opened a third branch in Philipsburg and a fourth branch in Pleasant Gap (2018), while expanding our charter to Jefferson and Centre counties as well as Clearfield county.
2020 and beyond - Your credit union is committed to building relationships in the communities we serve while keeping its focus on YOU, an owner. Timberland Federal Credit Union, a credit union, YOU can GROW with!
