About Us

Historical Information

GR Consumers Credit Union was founded in 1941 by employees of Consumers Energy (formerly Consumers Power Company) to provide low cost loans and financial services to fellow employees.

In 1985, GR Consumers Credit Union began expanding our field of membership by adding Business Partners. Businesses within a 25 mile radius of our office, who do not have a credit union of their own, are encouraged to offer membership at GR Consumers Credit Union to their employees. As an added benefit, immediate family members of these employees may join the credit union and enjoy the same membership advantages.

With the strong member base of Consumer Energy employees along with the employees of 86 Business Partners, GR Consumers Credit Union is able to continue offering many leading edge products and services. Since our inception in 1941, we have grown to over $40 million in assets with close to 4200 members. Our Credit Union Board of Directors, CEO and staff strongly support our mission statement:

"Working Together to Exceed Our Members' Expectations"

 Vision Statement

Our vision: GR Consumers Credit Union is committed to merging the best of the past and future, to provide for the financial needs and security of our members.

To ensure success, stability, and member satisfaction, we will continually plan for the future.

In order to achieve our vision, GR Consumers Credit Union's mission is "Working together to exceed our members' expectations"

It is also our mission to:

  1. Treat employees with mutual respect, keeping in mind they are perceived as the credit union
  2. Follow the philosophy that our members are the reason why we exist
  3. Maintain dedicated volunteers

Through a long-term commitment to this mission, we will be known as the credit union that is following the credit union philosophy of "People Helping People." Our members, vendors, peers, and employees will see that GR Consumers Credit Union offers highly professional services to its members.
