    Brief History:

    Established in 1960

    In April of 1960, a group of employees at Fairchild Camera and Instrument Semiconductor Division in Mountain View assembled in the cafeteria and decided to form a credit union. By the end of that year they had 600 members holding $65,000. By 1970, membership was up to 6,320 with $3.5 million in assets. The 1980s were pivotal to the growth of the Credit Union. The ’80s was a decade of high technology, and Tech CU worked hard to keep up with the growth of its existing and potential high tech membership companies.

    Tech CU, a California Credit Union, is now among the top 1% of the nation’s largest credit unions with nine full service branches in the Silicon Valley. With over $2 billion in assets and still growing, Tech CU is a leader in the Silicon Valley.
