In 1963, ten Chevrolet Aluminum Foundry employees each contributed $5 for a share in a newly formed credit union in Massena. Like many fledgling credit unions, the first “branch location” was modest: it was a tool box. Within three years, there were more than 350 members and a new location in the local UAW Hall. In the mid-80s, the FOM had expanded to included the residents of St. Lawrence County. Following the closure of the Foundry in 1986, the FOM became solely community-based. The most recent FOM expansion occurred in late 2017 when three Vermont counties were added. SeaComm Federal Credit Union is currently the 26th largest credit union headquartered in New York, with nearly 49,000 members and assets in excess of $589 million.
