WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. A new headquarters for Piedmont Advantage CU, the credit union for US Airways employees, will feature an atrium that looks like an air traffic-control tower and drive-thru teller lines shaped like airplane wings in celebration of the credit union’s heritage.
The $245 million credit union is moving its 65 employees to the 40,000 square-foot headquarters, which will serve as an anchor for a 22-acre business park to be named Piedmont Advantage Park, and is short drive from the headquarters of Truliant FCU, Members CU and Allegacy FCU. A groundbreaking ceremony for the project was held Thursday.
Piedmont Advantage was organized in 1949 to serve employees of Piedmont Aviation, which was eventually acquired by US Airways. The new site will enable the credit union to better serve the majority of its local members because it is closer to the US Airways reservation center and its 1,100 employees.
Piedmont Advantage will maintain a presence near Smith Reynolds Airport.
