about us

Who We Are

C-Plant Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative dedicated to meeting the financial needs of its members. For over 60 years, we have strived to help the hard-working residents of Western Kentucky make the most of their money through friendly service and innovative financial products.

Our Roots Run Deep

C-Plant was originally chartered in November 1951 to serve employees of the plant formerly known as Union Carbide Corporation, located in West Paducah, KY. The name “C-Plant” goes back to our roots. During the 1950s, the Department of Defense laid plans for three uranium plants located in Oak Ridge, TN, Portsmouth, OH, and Paducah, KY. The Paducah location was loosely referred to as the “C” plant. 

Not Just Another Customer 

As a not-for-profit financial institution, we pour any gains right back into the credit union to provide better rates and other resources that improve our members' lives. Unlike a bank, we don’t see you as just another customer. Here, you're a member — one with say in everything we do as a business. And as a member, you’ll experience the highest level of service from our dedicated employees, who recognize that you are the most important part of the credit union.

Once you join C-Plant Federal Credit Union, you’re a member for life! Whether you relocate, change employment, or retire, you’re always welcome in our family.
