American 1's History: American 1 began as the Jackson Co-Op Federal Credit Union, a service provided to members of the Jackson Co-Op, and was founded in 1950. The Jackson Co-Op Credit Union was originally located at the local United Rubber Workers Hall 185 on a part-time basis, featuring 47 members, three full-time employees in its first year.Later, the credit union purchased a small house on Chapin Street in 1951 and a vacant church on Pearl Street in 1962. Needing more office space to accommodate its growing membership, the Jackson Co-Op Credit Union bought the McCourtie dealership on Michigan Ave. in Jackson and established our current Home Office location. By 1964, Jackson Co-Op Credit Union had acquired over 5,000 members - and even sold “Co-Op appliances” until 1974. The credit union soon established branches in Battle Creek and Hillsdale, and other areas outside of Jackson.In 1987, Jackson Cooperative Credit Union officially changed its name to American 1 Federal Credit Union. In October 2011, to continue its strong growth, American 1 became a state chartered credit union and the new name became - American 1 Credit Union.Today, American 1 provides services to over 50,000 members. American 1 has more than 160 employees and serves Jackson, Calhoun, Washtenaw, Hillsdale, Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne Counties.
