Our History

NorState Federal Credit Union was founded on March 9, 1941. A group of local leaders saw the need to provide financial services to the employees of Fraser Papers and took it upon themselves to serve that need. Over the eight decades that have followed, the credit union has evolved into the dynamic, full service financial institution that it is today.  From its humble beginnings in the janitor's closet at the Fraser Paper's mill to a multi-branch organization serving thousands of people, the credit union has followed a strict notion of service to its members. As peoples' needs and expectations have changed, so has the credit union in order to meet those needs and to live up to our goal of being “Your Lifelong Financial Partner.”
