Springfield’s largest credit union opened its fourth branch.

BluCurrent Credit Union’s 3216 S. Glenstone Ave. location opened Monday, according to a news release.

“We’re confident this new location will strengthen new and existing relationships to help us better serve the personal and business banking needs of the community,” BluCurrent President and CEO Craig Tabor said in the release.

Nesbitt Construction Inc. served as general contractor for the 2,500-square-foot branch designed by Buxton Kubik Dodd Design Collective. The cost was estimated at $765,000, Springfield Business Journal previously reported.

Located south of the Glenstone-Erie Street intersection, the branch was built on previously vacant land adjacent to a Central Bank branch and a Hampton Inn hotel.

BluCurrent ranked No. 1 on SBJ’s 2019 list of the area’s largest credit unions, published in April. The company reported 2018 assets of $186.5 million, deposits of $165.4 million and loans of $160 million, as well as over 22,000 members.

The company operates two other branches in Springfield and a location in Nixa, according to its website.
