The History of Trademark

This Member owned, not-for-profit cooperative holds the philosophy of ‘people helping people’. In 1936, the state of Maine Credit Union was formed. The country was in the midst of the Great Depression. People needed a safe and trusted place to put their money and a safe and fair place to borrow money. There were two employee groups who each started their own southern Maine credit unions to fill this need. The employees of Cumberland County Power and Light, created Cumberland County Power and Light Employees Federal Credit Union (CCP&L Employees FCU for short) and the associates of Hannaford created Hannaford Associates FCU. In 1954, CCP&L Employees FCU changed its name to Central Maine Power Employees FCU, followed by Alliance of Maine Federal Credit Union in 2002. In 2010, the name changed to Trademark Federal Credit Union through a mutual merger of those two founding credit unions in Maine. In 2018 this financial institution opened its charter to people who live, work, worship, attend school in, and businesses and other legal entities located in Cumberland, Sagadahoc and Kennebec counties.

With credit unions in South Portland, Scarborough and Augusta, ME, Trademark has been a trusted state of Maine credit union since 1936. We offer a wide variety of products and services, with some of the friendliest, most knowledgeable consumer and mortgage lenders in central and southern Maine. As a full service financial institution with consumer and mortgage lenders, our Loan Officers work hard to help people save money. Most recently, we worked with a Member to refinance their auto loan with us, and by lowering their rate and shortening the term, were able to save them $2,505.77 over the life of that car loan. We also help people get rid of high interest rate credit cards, whether it’s through our low-rate personal loan, or by utilizing the equity you already have in your home, with a HELOC (home equity line of credit) Loan. We believe in meaningful, purposeful work including to educate and teach our members how to pay less for loans. Whether it’s raising your credit score or budgeting, it’s our focus to empower you to pursue your passions.
