The Abbott Laboratories Employees Credit Union, ALEC, has moved its corporate headquarters and accompanying branch into a newly constructed and innovative building less than a mile from its old home. The three-story building is at 325 Tri-State Parkway, Gurnee, Illinois, just west of its former headquarters.
“We couldn’t be more excited about the new member service center,” said ALEC president and CEO, Joseph Trosclair. “It integrates new approaches and technologies that, together, enable ALEC to offer its members a best-in-class experience and improve their financial lives.”
ALEC has seven other branches, or member service centers, across Lake County. Members will experience no service disruptions because of the move, according to the credit union.
The new member service center features the credit union’s first drive-through lanes, featuring interactive teller machines that perform all of the transactions of an ATM with the added benefit of providing a driver the option of speaking with an ALEC service representative via video screen. The new service center also includes an advisor hallway to provide immediate access to investment and mortgage specialists.
ALEC opened in 1990 to employees of Abbott and their family members. In 2013, when AbbVie was spun off from Abbott, ALEC opened to those employees and their families, as well. Today, ALEC has over $800 million in assets and 31,000 members in all 50 states.
