Our History

Ford Co-operative Credit Society Limited (FCCS) trading as Geelong Bank was established in September 1974 by a small, dedicated group of employees of the Ford Motor Company in Geelong, to provide financial services to Geelong Ford employees and their families.

During 1984 FCCS merged with the Ford Broadmeadows Employee Credit Union.

In 1985 a branch was opened at the Sydney Plant of Ford Motor Company.

During 1990 a further merger occurred with a Geelong based Credit Union called Commercial Credit Co-operative Ltd. With this merger our membership was no longer restricted to Ford Employees and their families. 

In 2018 FCCS made a decision to change its name to Geelong Bank.  Geelong Bank provides a customer owned banking alternative ie we are a mutual, owned by our members and are focused on our member benefits rather than raising profits for shareholders

Geelong Bank has continued to grow and prosper with many of our members spread all over Australia sharing in the different kind of banking that FCCS offers. In fact 90% of our members and our total deposit funds are held by members from the local and wider community. Please refer to our Annual Report for more information.
