Citadel Credit Union is a community-based credit union with multiple locations throughout Montgomery County. Formerly known as Lukens Employee Federal Credit Union, Citadel was founded in 1937 by the employees of Lukens Steel in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. They opened their first branch in Montgomery County in 2014 and currently have 24 locations across Montgomery, Chester, Philadelphia, Bucks, and Delaware counties. Montco Happening recently named Citadel “Best Credit Union” in Montgomery County.
In August of 2022, they launched a dedicated business banking team to assist local businesses. Through this new endeavor, Citadel will be able to assist businesses with other services such as payroll, remote deposit capture, and much more, allowing for local businesses to strengthen and grow.
What sets Citadel apart from typical banks is that they are member-focused. The service that a member of Citadel receives differs from what they would receive at another bank. Jessica DiDonato, Manager of the West Norriton branch, states “At a bank you’re another number, another customer. Here, we truly are invested in our members, and how we can help them.” Through all the services Citadel provides, a member is always treated as more than just a customer.
