Moran Refrigeration building in St. Marys, Ohio

Success Story: Minster Bank and Moran Refrigeration

Small business owners need a bank that truly knows them and understands their company. 

That’s why Doug Moran, owner of Moran Refrigeration in St. Marys, Ohio, has been a Minster Bank customer for nearly 20 years. Moran’s company itself has been serving northwest Ohio’s appliance needs since 1947.

Local Focus at a Community Bank

Moran said the tipping point that caused him to search for a new bank was his frustration with the other options – most of which weren’t community-focused like Minster Bank. 

“Our previous bank kept changing hands and getting bigger and bigger, and the local person wasn’t involved in any decision-making at that bank anymore. It all went to corporate, where the decision-making for loans and other things like that was still made locally with Minster Bank,” said Moran.

Whether they’re seeking financing for new equipment or a loan for building renovations, Moran said his business’ relationship with Minster Bank has only grown stronger over the years.

A Bank That Knows Your Name

Moran said the biggest reason he chooses Minster Bank for his business – and his personal accounts – is the way he’s treated there.

He named Ron Meyer, Commercial Loan Officer; Kathy Sampson, St. Marys Branch Manager; and Brenda Slone, Branch Operations Supervisor at St. Marys, as people he’s enjoyed working with during his time as a customer.

“When you walk in there, everybody’s always friendly; everybody speaks to you and you develop quite a good friendship with them,” he said. “They ask you how your family is, how were your vacations. It’s not where some of the banks don’t know who you are, they know your account number.”

He added, “If you call and say ‘Hey, it’s me, Doug,’ they know our business.” 

Finally, Moran said he’s enjoyed working with Minster Bank so much that he’s given reviews to other people who ask about local banking options: “I’ve had people ask who we bank with and I always recommend them,” he said. “They’re very easy to work with.”
