Alex Mauck, a growing expert in waste water
management, finds his long-time family business playing a vital role in
environmental and community health. Most of us would prefer not to think about
sewage. Not Alex, owner of Goodman Sanitation Inc., established in 1948. Since
purchasing the family business from his father in 1995, Alex has immersed
himself in waste - sometimes literally. That's because he knows that a
functioning onsite septic system is one key to a cleaner and safer future.
"What we do here is critical to the health and
environment of our community," says Alex. As our planet faces a shrinking
supply of clean water, the need for advancements in septic efficiency grows day
by day. "In my business we need to stay up with the most current technology. In
the last decade, there have been more technological changes in waste water
management than in the 30 years previous." Along with the unpredictable nature
of technology, Alex's industry is subject to a myriad of State, DEQ, and
Federal rules and regulations, leading to a shortage of qualified candidates
Alex needed a bank that could understand the
complex nature of his work and provide him with the expertise to help grow his
company. He needed a bank that took his business as seriously as he does. Lewis
& Clark Bank is able to provide Alex with the same level of individualized
service Goodman Sanitation gives to his clients.
Alex knows that finances are often just as messy
as some of his job visits, and he appreciates the knowledgeable staff that
keeps him organized and informed. As a member of the Strategic Business Forum,
Alex enjoys the macroeconomic perspective he gains from the Bank's experts.
"The events and forums offered by Lewis &
Clark Bank really help keep perspective - the big picture - excellent for a
business owner to guide their business."
As Goodman Sanitation pursues opportunity everywhere from Clackamas to the Caribbean, Alex can chart a clear - and clean - course with a Partner for Business at his side. Big banks don't like getting their hands dirty. We do. Because sometimes the dirtiest jobs are also the most important ones.
“The need for advancement... grows day by day.”
