America First Credit Union Opens State-of-the-Art Branch in Utah County

New, western Utah County location is built around a tech-centric member experience

EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah (Jan. 22, 2024) – America First Credit Union (AFCU) today announced the opening of one of its most technologically advanced branches in Eagle Mountain.

The new, state-of-the-art facility, which incorporates technology inside and out, is the first America First branch built exclusively around video teller machine technology. This new technology provides on-demand support from remotely located America First experts and will allow members to efficiently conduct many additional types of financial transactions through the drive-through.

The Eagle Mountain branch will serve a community of approximately 54,000, including more than 11,000 AFCU members. The new location, 4195 N. Pony Express Parkway, will be a resource to those living in rapidly growing Eagle Mountain, surrounding communities such as Cedar Fort and Fairfield, and to those who travel through and work in western Utah County.

“America First has a strong commitment to the vibrant, growing communities in Utah County where we have served members for decades,” said Thayne Shaffer, CEO of America First Credit Union. “The technology and accompanying member experience underscores this commitment and will serve as a model for future branches.”

The Eagle Mountain branch, the 13th America First has opened in Utah County, will be managed by Angela Platt. She and her team will host the community at an opening celebration on Saturday, Jan. 27, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will feature free refreshments from local food trucks. Additionally, members can enter to win a $5,000 Family Vacation Package with Get-Away-Today by stopping in between Jan. 22 and Feb. 3.

The opening celebration will be followed by an official ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, Feb. 2.

America First will also have several new member offers available at the Eagle Mountain Branch through Feb. 10, including:

  • $150 to new AFCU members (savings, checking, debit, online statement)
  • $50 to new youth members (17 and younger)
