“Our business was taking on larger and more diverse projects as we grew, but because of our seasonal activity, our bank was not able to provide the proper credit lines when we needed them the most. We turned to SB Partners to provide the portfolio required to search the financial marketplace and they arranged for a new facilitator to maintain our growth and allow us to move forward into bigger and better challenges. They have continued to be our accountants and auditors for over 20 years.”
