To put it simply, inCon-trol Water Systems is in the business of moving water. Its work, however, is far from simple. Whether the inCon-trol team is installing an irrigation pump or a distinctive water feature, they place special emphasis on the blueprint phase of construction, knowing that planning is essential.
On the flip side, when Irrigators Supply, Inc., inCon-trol’s sister company and authorized supplier, recently purchased a new office building in Little Elm they did not have to put much thought into what lender they would use. They turned to Independent Bank lender Robert Camp. After 14 years of working with inCon-trol and Irrigators Supply, Inc., Camp understands the ins and outs of their businesses. However, he approaches each new loan with the same amount of preparation he used on their first loan over a decade ago.
Camp’s ability to plan as well as his ability to adapt along the way, are among the many reasons Kenneth Phelps, inCon-trol CEO, values his relationship with Camp and Independent Bank.
“There’s no red tape with Independent Bank,” Phelps said. “Robert lives here and works here, which makes things easy and saves us time and money.”
In an age where the distinction between customers and numbers is painfully blurred, Independent Bank has stayed firm in its commitment to always provide customers the personal service they deserve. This means Independent Bank lenders listen before talking, research before requesting and will never tell you how your business should be run.
Phelps values Camp’s friendly and helpful nature because he said people are the heart and soul of inCon-trol’s and Irrigators Supply’s business so he likes to do business with people who share the same values.
Independent Bank’s modern convenience and technology are also important to Phelps. inCon-trol Water Systems and Irrigators Supply, Inc. both utilize Independent Bank’s remote deposit capture service to deposit checks without ever having to go into the bank.
“The products Independent Bank provides help to push our company forward,” Phelps said.
Irrigators Supply is also moving forward in the new office they just purchased, which is currently undergoing a remodel. In addition to serving as inCon-trol’s authorized supplier, Irrigators Supply offers a full line of Weathermatic, RainBird, Toro, Irritrol and Hydro-Rain products to the north Texas area. The company is also a proud Women Business Enterprise under the leadership of its president, Patty Phelps.
As Irrigators Supply and inCon-trol Water Systems move into the next phase of their business they can count on Robert Camp and Independent Bank to grow along with them.
