Getting the White Glove Treatment

Sani-Chem partners with First Internet Bank SBA team

In our current climate, clean, hygienic homes and workplaces are more important than ever. Don Bailey, President of Sani-Chem Cleaning Supplies, a Clearwater, FL-based distributor of cleaning and janitorial products, saw his opportunity and pursued it with the help of the First Internet Bank Small Business Administration (SBA) team.

Don notes, “The reason I selected First Internet Bank over my longstanding banking relationship was my Business Development Officer. She provided white-glove service and educated me every step of the process. The entire team’s responsiveness, competencies and streamlined processes won the deal. This was my first experience at SBA financing and I had a patient and extremely well-versed counselor.”

In addition to financing the acquisition, Don’s loan also provided adequate working capital to ensure a successful opening. He appreciated the effort that went into his loan, “The FIB team was terrific in being nimble and responsive to changes necessary to structure the deal in a few unique ways. Without this extra effort, I would not have been able to acquire the business.”

With Sani-Chem Cleaning Supplies off to a successful start, Don Bailey is a confirmed fan of the First Internet Bank SBA team: “I am absolutely delighted to recommend FIB and be a reference if needed.”

We’re equally delighted to have him as a client!
