Texas Trust Credit Union has opened a new 3,009-square-foot branch in Hurst, the former site of a Bank of America branch. The new location, the credit union’s 11th, offers full financial services, four drive-through lanes and a drive-up ATM.
The branch, located at 103 West Harwood, is managed by Espy Taylor, employs 11, including seven recently new hired employees. “The Hurst branch allows us to better serve members who live and work in the northern part of Tarrant County,” said Jim Minge, president of Texas Trust. “This branch is part of our expansion plan toward our goal of becoming a $1 billion financial institution.”
Part of that expansion includes adding 11 new Texas Trust branded ATMs in high traffic areas, including one in Hurst, to give members better access and additional technologies such as mobile deposit services. In July, Texas Trust announced plans to merge with Arlington-based Security One Credit Union. The merge would create the 18th largest credit union in Texas with $815 million in assets, 65,000 members and 13 locations.
