Weyerhaeuser credit union building branch

The Mirror

Weyerhaeuser Employees Credit Union has broken ground on a new 5,000 square-foot building in Federal Way.

The credit union plans to occupy 3,500 square feet and lease the remaining space.

The new branch will be two hours from the WECU headquarters in Longview but is in the same town as the corporate headquarters of Weyerhaeuser Co.

Bob Kane, president of WECU, said “building a branch in Federal Way became a strategic decision to promote our brand recognition with Weyerhaeuser and increase our growth potential and involvement within that community.”

Scheduled to open this summer, the new branch will feature a full-service staff, safe-deposit boxes, four drive-through lanes, a surcharge-free ATM and an e-banking center, according to Kane.

The branch was designed by Seattle-based architectural firm Emick Howard & Seibert and will be constructed by the Tacoma-based firm of Lease Crutcher Lewis.

WECU was chartered in 1937 and has 48,000-plus members in all 50 states, with $375 million in assets.
