It was in 1988, when the former Fairfield shop builders’ yard was sold to the Norwegian Kvaerner group and ten years later Kvaerner Govan Credit Union was formed by a group of employees who had a view to helping families and individuals in shipyard to improve their quality of life, in the setting up of the Credit Union.
The yard passed to BAE Systems in 1999 and found work over the future decade in making destroyers and aircraft carriers for the Royal Navy. The common bond changes then for employees of Fairfield Govan Shipyard the name change is registered in November 2000 for those working at BAE Systems (Naval Ships).
Since then the Credit Union has offered members a way to save and borrow at an affordable rate.
Any updates on this credit union should be e-mailed to the Historical Society for inclusion and recorded for prosperity
