As the ownership of the Plant changed (ultimately owned by Exxon), so did the Credit Union’s name, with a total of five name changes between 1949 and 1994. In the early 2000s there were several mergers, including the 2003 merger with EXCO FCU, which has the distinction of being the largest credit union merger in Louisiana history. Following a change to a community charter in 2007, the Credit Union experienced its largest growth spurt. The EFCU (Exxon Federal Credit Union) Financial name was adopted in 2015, and today, EFCU is Louisiana’s fifth largest credit union, with more than 53,500 members and assets in excess of $687 million.
