Numerica Credit Union was established in 1937 as the Spokane Railway Credit Union (SRCU), following the vast expansion of the railroad in the Northwest. As the economy changed, SRCU expanded its field of membership by adding employees of other transportation systems and shippers. Numerica Credit Union rebrand occurred in 2000 for two reasons: 1) to better reflect its expanding membership base, and 2) to let potential members know they could join the Credit Union, even though they weren’t railroad workers. Numerica is currently the fifth largest credit union headquartered in Washington, with more than 171,000 members and assets in excess of $3.6 billion.
