AAC Credit Union and La Macchia Group Hold Open Houseby La Macchia Group
WALKER, MICHIGAN - On April 14, 2016, AAC Credit Union held an open house to welcome their members and the community to visit their new main office and get a first-hand look at their new, award-winning brand. Partnering with La Macchia Group, a design-build firm based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they were able to design and build their new main office focusing on future growth of the credit union and a space optimized for their new brand.
Many members of the credit union, including the Board of Directors, members of the community, and other credit union affiliates attended the open house commenting on the convenient location near Meijers and giving positive feedback about the new brand for AAC Credit Union. "Working with La Macchia Group has been a pleasure. We are so excited about our new main office and brand. We thank everyone for coming to help us celebrate this new chapter in our AAC story," stated Brian Turmell, CEO of AAC Credit Union.
AAC's history is tied to the local furniture industry, a prominent feature of the Western Michigan community. Their new building incorporates this unique aspect of their heritage by featuring locally made Herman Miller furniture. Local subcontractors were used to build the new facility under the direction of La Macchia Group, thus keeping consistent with sourcing through the community talent. The location of the new facility was acquired to maximize visibility, accessibility, and a prime area near AAC's target demographic - a strategic decision made by La Macchia Group through their in-depth planning study. New technology was implemented in the new loby including custom teller pods instead of the traditional teller line featuring cash dispensary machines.
