For Cameron Aller, using Minster Bank for his business needs was a no-brainer.
“We’ve been working with Minster Bank for many years,” Aller says. “My dad had a business, and he started doing business financing through them when I was a kid. When we got older, we all started doing our finances with them.”
Aller is the general manager of Sunset Cylinder Exchange, a propane exchange program based in St. Marys, Ohio. His younger brother is the company president, and his older brother serves as vice president.
Successful Businesses Start With Minster Bank
So, what is a propane exchange program, exactly?
“You know the propane tank on your gas grill?” asks Aller. “When it’s empty, you take it to a gas station or Lowe’s or a convenience store with the propane cages out front, and you exchange the propane tank. We own the cages.”
Sunset Cylinder Exchange is responsible for delivering and picking up the propane tanks and also retaining, refilling and refurbishing the tanks.
With more than 1,200 locations in four states, Aller knew he needed a bank that would make it easy for him to take care of his company’s day-to-day operations. Because Minster Bank has been there for his family for many years, he knew exactly where to turn for his banking and financing needs.
“We’ve been working with Minster Bank for many years through our farm,” Aller says. “Farm financing is where we started.”
The Ease Of Online Banking For The Whole Family
Minster Bank’s business online banking makes banking more flexible, cuts down on paperwork and saves time, Aller says. It’s a feature he and his family use every day, along with Minster Bank’s remote deposit service.
“We use remote deposit for checks and do all the checkbook balancing from the online accounts,” he says. “The online banking comes in handy when we transfer money from business to business.”
Minster Bank’s business services make it easy for Aller to continue the success of his business, along with the family’s hog farm and Sunset Cylinder’s parent company, Whitney Painting.
Banking Solutions For Businesses
When Aller does come into the St. Marys office of Minster Bank to deposit the cash receipts from his businesses, he enjoys the experience. He says the staff is easy to work with and helps find solutions for all of his company’s banking needs.
“Minster Bank makes it convenient, and they bring solutions to us: If they have something they think is going to make doing business easier, they are proactive in showing it to us,” Aller says. “If we have any problem at all, I make a phone call, and it gets taken care of quickly. Their service is great. If I need accounts changed, Minster Bank is quick to do it. We’ve got such a good relationship with them.”
