History of Avestar Credit Union

Five Decades of Excellence!

Perry Employees Credit Union began serving employees of Perry Printing in 1964. Our charter was expanded in 1974 to serve Artcraft employees and the former Kress Employees Credit Union members. Then in 1988, the Credit Union charter was changed to a Community Charter in order to serve all the people who lived or worked in the City of Waterloo. At that time, we became known as Perry Communities Credit Union.

Our charter expanded in the fall of 2001 to serve persons residing or employed in the cities or towns of Columbus, Lake Mills, Marshall, Medina, Reeseville, Watertown, and Waterloo in addition to employees of Trek Bicycle and Northstar Print Group. With the larger charter came a need for a new name and in October of 2002, we changed our name to Avestar Credit Union.

Finally, our charter expanded once again in 2015. Currently, we proudly serve members living or working in the counties of Dane, Dodge, Columbia and Jefferson.
