Guardian Credit Union

In 1934, Harnischfeger Corporation employees in West Milwaukee, Wisconsin established a credit union to provide a source of credit at a fair interest rate and the opportunity for its members to improve their economic and social conditions.

In 1986, the membership voted to expand the charter to a community credit union serving any persons living or working in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties.

Guardian Credit Union is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is headquartered in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Guardian currently has over $275 Million in assets and over 30,000 members, ranking us in the top thirty in members and assets for credit unions in Wisconsin.

Our current membership eligibility includes those living or working in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington, Ozaukee, Racine, Kenosha or Walworth counties. Every day more members turn to Guardian as a premier resource for auto loans, mortgages and savings options.

Guardian is committed to the development of its staff and offers a unique opportunity for growth in all functions of our business. Many of our senior-level managers started at the credit union as branch tellers and have advanced their careers within the organization.
