The desire to control his own destiny leads to successful companies

“When we see an opportunity, we want to move fast. Synovus has helped ensure we can with business loans and a revolving line of credit.”

Another piece of the Knight’s Companies puzzle was added in 2002 when its Trucking Division was established to better manage their operations’ materials inventory supply, and to control the on-time delivery of its products to end-customers.  

Almost 50 years later, while Bud is still active in the businesses, his two sons, Michael and Pete, now run the daily operations, which includes 320 employees at 13 facilities throughout South Carolina and Georgia. Like their father, they know it’s important to have access to capital so they can move fast if they see a business opportunity.

“We began banking with Synovus in 2014, after the bank we had been using for years just became too difficult to work with,” says Jim. “We’ve been very satisfied with our Synovus banker; he’s easy to work with, and he knows when we call we need him fast!”

If you’re looking for a bank that responds with solutions to help you grow your business, Synovus is here for you. Give us a call at 1-888-SYNOVUS (1-888-796-6887).
