About the Organization

The roots of Shipbuilders Credit Union run deep, tracing back to the early 1900s and The Manitowoc Company. The Manitowoc Company originally focused on shipbuilding and ship repair and was known as Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company. In 1938, to better serve their growing employee base, they established Shipbuilders Credit Union (SCU). Much like its namesake company, the credit union was built on a tradition of quality and pride, with hardworking employees focused on its members. SCU served the employees and families of Manitowoc Shipbuilding for many years, and in 1999 they became chartered and expanded their reach to all of Manitowoc County. Today, the member-owned credit union has more than thirty employees, an even larger geographic market and two branch locations in Manitowoc, Wisconsin and one branch location in Mishicot, Wisconsin. SCU serves over 9,800 members with more than $117 million in assets. While ships are no longer built in the community, SCU is proud to continue the tradition of the original Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company and the individuals who created its legacy. With a Midwest drive, SCU continues to live and work by the same values it embraced at its founding: reliable, respectful, resourceful, and real. When Manitowoc Shipbuilding built a legacy, Shipbuilders Credit Union created its own tradition of Building Better Futures for its employees, members, their families, and our community.
