Houston Milk Producers Federal Credit Union was chartered in 1936 to serve dairy farmers in Harris County, Texas, which at the time numbered approximately 440. The area served (otherwise known as the "milk shed") grew to include areas in far east Texas, to the west out to LaGrange and Brenham, and to the north up to Navasota and Madisonville. At that time, the milk marketing cooperative was called the South Texas Milk Producers Association.
Other milk marketing cooperatives were formed in San Antonio, Austin, and Waco. In the early 1960's, these cooperatives joined together to form Milk Producers, Inc. Several years later the cooperatives in cities such as Dallas and Corpus Christi formed the Associated Milk Producers, Inc., which reached through the Midwest from the Gulf of Mexico to the Canadian border. Texas was in Southern Region, which was divided into five additional divisions, with Houston located in the Southern Division. Associated Milk Producers merged with several other milk marketing co-ops and ultimately formed the Dairy Farmers of America in 1998.
Throughout the 80’s and 90’s, Houston Milk Producers Federal Credit Union grew and merged with several other Credit Unions including:
1980 - Texas Dairymen's FCU
1985 - Central West Texas Milk Producers Association FCU
1990 - Biehl NOHOGA FCU
1999 - Oklahoma Dairymen’s FCU
2000 - Norton Employees Credit Union
In 2000, Houston Milk Producers Federal Credit Union changed our name to Members Trust of the Southwest Federal Credit Union, in order to more accurately reflect our diversified and growing field of membership.
In March of 2000, Members Trust Federal Credit Union moved into our new Stephenville, Texas office so we could better reach and serve our members in central Texas.
In 2016, Members Trust Federal Credit Union will move into a new Houston office, conveniently located next door to our current location. This new branch will provide greater convenience with drive-thru access and a drive-up ATM, updated technology, and a warm and inviting lobby.
Members Trust Federal Credit Union is dedicated to the philosophy of "members helping members" in a professional environment, by providing all member-owners with quality financial services based on sound business practices and by delivering these in an efficient and friendly manner.
