America First Credit Union Opens New Branch in Spanish Fork, UT


SPANISH FORK, UT – February 17, 2023 – America First Credit Union is celebrating the opening of its newest Utah branch located in Spanish Fork at 1353 N Canyon Creek Pkwy. The branch opening marks the credit union’s 119th branch across Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho and New Mexico and will replace two former AFCU branch locations in Spanish Fork, both of which closed earlier this month. The new branch will service more than ten thousand assigned members and will continue to be an important branch for Utah County.

In honor of the branch opening and its dedication to the Spanish Fork community, the credit union donated $5,000 from the America First Charitable Foundation to two area non-profits – Tabitha’s Way and Nebo School District Foundation. America First has been a long-standing community partner and strong supporter of many Spanish Fork-area causes, including United Way of Utah County’s Days of Caring, Spanish Fork City’s Fiesta Days, school shoe donation programs and other initiatives.

“America First Credit Union has a strong commitment to the rapidly growing Spanish Fork area, celebrating 20 years of service in the community,” said Brad Laing, the branch manager at the new Spanish Fork location. “This consolidation of the two previous branches into one new state-of-the-art branch demonstrates our commitment to the community and our members as our physical and digital footprints continue to grow.”

America First’s new Spanish Fork location opens under the leadership of Laing as branch manager and staff with a combined 130 years of experience. To best serve members in the Spanish Fork community, the branch features enhanced technology for efficient transactions and a full complement of services. Spanish Fork branch hours will be Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.





Proudly celebrating 83 years of servicing members and a long-standing history, America First Credit Union has become one of the largest, most stable, and most progressive credit unions in the country. As Utah’s largest credit union, it has remained a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative financial institution. Today, America First has 119 locations, and is the seventh largest credit union in assets in the United States with over $17 billion, and the fifth largest credit union in membership in America with more than 1.3 million members.
