PSECU completes transition into new building
The Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union is moved in and functioning out of its new office building in Susquehanna Township.
The credit union moved in over three weekends in January, opening its new, 235,000-square foot building for complete operations on Jan. 27, according to Margaret Delmonico, PSECU’s public relations director.
“It was quite an orchestrated event,” she said of the move from the former PSECU building off Cameron Street to the new building about one mile away on Elmerton Road. “All went smoothly, and the employees were tremendous through it.”
In the summer, PSECU expected the move in November, but the company had to push it back two months to deal with some systems integration issues and to avoid scheduling the move during the holiday season.
In January, the information technology department moved on the second weekend, the call center moved the third weekend and the administration and support moved the fourth weekend, Delmonico said.
Delmonico said there was a disruption in service for credit union members one night in January that lasted from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. It took longer than expected, she said, but had been purposely scheduled for off-peak hours in case there were any problems.
The $74 million construction for the new building had been going on since October 2011. More than 500 employees are now in the new building, Delmonico said.
PSECU has nearly $4 billion in assets and more than 400,000 members.
