In 1953, 11 Texas Instruments employees pooled five dollars each and petitioned the Texas Banking Commission to establish an organization that would promote thrift and provide low-cost loans to TI employees. Soon after, a charter was granted by the State of Texas and Texins Credit Union was born. Just three months later, membership had grown to over 267 and assets totaled $6,855.73. A tradition of excellence had begun.
For nearly 40 years, Texins served only Texas Instruments employees. Then, in 1991, Texins expanded its field of membership to include employees at select businesses outside of TI. In 1998, Texins Credit Union expanded once again to adopt a community charter, allowing it to offer membership to citizens in surrounding communities. That same year, members voted to change the name from Texins to Texans to better reflect the diversity of this expanded field of membership.
Today, Texans provides a full suite of financial products and services to more than 110,000 members. Membership spans seven counties and serves the employees of over 100 select businesses. The Credit Union operates 13 branches and currently manages over $1.5 billion in assets.
