About Listerhill

Listerhill Credit Union is a nonprofit financial cooperative improving lives in our community.

A credit union is a nonprofit cooperative owned and operated by its members. This is what distinguishes a credit union from other financial institutions. Members put their money in a variety of savings accounts, and that money, in turn, is lent to members. After operating expenses and reserve requirements are met, income is returned to all members in the form of dividends and comprehensive financial services.

It's all about We
Serve
We exist to serve.

Listerhill's mission and vision are an extension of our founding. We are a financial cooperative whose primary purpose was, and still is, to help our members live a healthy financial life and to offer an alternative to traditional profit-driven banks and lenders.

Innovative
We are innovative.

Whenever we see the opportunity to improve the service our members receive, we make it happen. Our brand is at the fore of our industry and our products and services are leading edge. We are never satisfied. We know it can always be done better.

Communities
We love our communities.

Our lives and out part within our towns and cities, schools and businesses extends far beyond the service of our members. We are in it for everyone. As our community grows and thrives, so do we. We are altruistic, not for business reasons, but because we care.

Comprehensive
We are comprehensive.

Listerhill is a comprehensive financial institution, offering every financial service necessary to improve a member's life. Although financial services alone can be imitated, our motivation can not.

Approachable
We are approachable.

We lack the stuffiness of a traditional financial institution because we're not a traditional financial institution. We are built from community and we know our neighbors and members. They are our family and friends and we treat them as such. We're always friendly. We encourage interaction.

What is a credit union?
A credit union is a nonprofit cooperative owned and operated by its members.

This is what distinguishes a credit union from other financial institutions. Members put their money in a variety of savings accounts, and that money, in turn, is lent to members. After operating expenses and reserve requirements are met, income is returned to all members in the form of dividends and comprehensive financial services.

Each member owns an equal "share" in the organization and has the right to vote in elections for the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee. Every member has one vote, regardless of how much he or she has on deposit. At the Credit Union, there is no select group of shareholders who profits more than anyone else. All members profit — individually and collectively.

When you join a credit union, membership is for life — even if you retire, move away or change employers. Our policy is "lifetime membership"; once a member, always a member.

Our Vision

To value people over profit, work passionately, exceed expectations, proactively seek improvement, and make our community a better place.

1937
Before Listerhill Credit Union

In 1937, Richard S. Reynolds traveled to Europe in search of aluminum sources for his company, Reynolds Metals. When he returned, Reynolds shared with Congress stories about the arsenal Adolf Hitler was building in Germany.

U.S. Sen. Lister Hill, of Alabama, listened, and the two persuaded Congress it was in the best interest of the nation to begin producing military airplanes. The local Reynolds plant was created along with a new community, aptly named Listerhill, and supplied the nation with airplanes during World War II from 1942-45. After the war, the plant started producing Reynold's aluminum foil and has long been a key employer in the Shoals.

People Helping People

In 1952, ten years after the aluminum plant opened, seven Reynolds Metals employees came together to combat the growing issue of predatory lending to other vulnerable plant workers. At the time, loan sharks would lend money with outrageous interest rates and sometimes never-ending terms. With just $5 each and a passionate idea of creating a cooperative that benefited and protected each other, these seven men founded Listerhill Credit Union.

Operation of the credit union humbly began inside the Reynolds Metals plant in 1953. Shortly thereafter, Listerhill Credit Union would build its headquarters across the street where its main office currently resides.

A Continued Tradition of Integrity & Excellence

Over 65 years later, and the issue of predatory lending hasn't exactly gone away. In fact, it's just as important today as ever to use local financial cooperatives, like credit unions, to support each other and our community.

Today, Listerhill Credit Union serves over 90,000 members in 13 counties with 17 branches across northwest Alabama and south central Tennessee. Named one of the Best Credit Unions in Alabama by Forbes magazine, Listerhill continues its commitment in serving the local community with integrity while striving for excellence and innovation.
