About Us

Our Mission….
Semiconductor of Maine Federal Credit Union is a member owned organization providing our credit union family a wide range of financial services to meet their needs in a friendly and efficient manner.

Our History….
The charter of Fairchild Semiconductor of Maine Federal Credit Union was approved by the Bureau of Federal Credit Unions on May 10, 1966 and given charter number 17436.

At that time, persons eligible to join the credit union included “employees of Fairchild Semiconductor who work in South Portland or Portland, Maine; members of this credit union who are retired as annuitants from the above employment and retain their membership in this credit union; employees of this credit union; members of their immediate families; and organizations of such persons.”

The original founders of the credit union are as follows:
John Magarian
George Manolakis
J.D. Loring
Robert Kenny
Phil Perry
John Carter
Joseph Ball, Jr.

In 1982, “Fairchild Semiconductor Of Maine FCU” was renamed “Fairchild of Maine Federal Credit Union”.

In 1987, when National Semiconductor acquired Fairchild Semiconductor, the credit union’s name was again changed, this time to “National of Maine Federal Credit Union”.

In 1997, when Fairchild Semiconductor was spun off from National Semiconductor, in order to better reflect our field of membership, our name was changed to “Semiconductor Of Maine Federal Credit Union.”
