BREMERTON, Wash. – Kitsap CU will pick up two new branches with a deal to acquire Quimper Community FCU, a $47 million credit union in nearby Port Townsend.

Officials said that the merger will bring more resources for home, business and auto loans and enhanced customer services for them through the $900 million Kitsap CU, including many more ATMs and being able to use a mobile phone to manage an account — plus "the state of the local, regional and national economic climates, as well as the increasing pace and expense of new regulatory requirements."

The merger will rebrand Quimper as branches of Kitsap CU and give the credit union its first offices in Jefferson County.
