Our History

On April 27, 1940 our Credit Union began as the Serum Employee’s Credit Union.   As the Serum Company evolved into Fort Dodge Laboratories, Fort Dodge Animal Health, and currently as Boehringer Ingelheim VetMedica, Inc our Credit Union also evolved.  We evolved from the Serum Employee’s Credit Union to FDL Employee’s Credit Union to Fort Dodge Family Credit Union.


February 2004 we marked a milestone in our history when we added Nestle Purina PetCare to our Field of Membership.  Since then, we have grown and added four new employee groups, the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility in November 2010 and CJ BioAmerica in April 2014, AML Riverside in 2015 and CertainTeed in 2016.  We are proud to serve members from all of these groups!


Not only do we serve the employees of Boehringer Ingelheim VetMedica, Inc, Nestle Purina PetCare, the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility, CJ BioAmerica, AML Riverside, and CertainTeed we serve their family members as well.  We define family members as spouse, children, grandchildren, parents, grandparents, brother, sisters, and all corresponding in-laws.


We pride ourselves with our closed field of membership.  In an environment where it is easy to turn to a Community Charter we have chosen to hold fast to our exclusivity.  It is our opinion that we work harder to serve our members and hold true to the fact that we exist solely to serve our membership.  Credit Union philosophy runs true and deep within our Credit Union.  Our members truly experience the Credit Union difference…
