West Coast Sand & Gravel’s iconic turquoise trucks have been a fixture of California roads for more than 50 years. In the early days of the business, their customers were limited to construction industry contractors, and the fleet consisted of two trucks. Today, West Coast Sand & Gravel has more than 300 turquoise trucks in their fleet, spread out over 13 locations in California and Arizona. They now serve a wide range of customers from a variety of industries.

Marv Struiksma, the Chairman of West Coast Sand & Gravel, has been involved in operations since his uncles first started the business in 1968. As the patriarch of the enterprise, he is a long-time proponent of West Coast’s relationship with Citizens Business Bank. He enthusiastically declares that the Bank is “the easiest bank we’ve had to work with for Equipment Financing. They are the one we go to.” In addition to the various loans they’ve obtained through the Bank, West Coast has also utilized a myriad of other financial services. “The Bank has allowed us to expand into mining and upgrade the trucking and supply side,” says Dan Reyneveld, CEO of West Coast Sand & Gravel.

Online Banking services have been convenient for their business needs, as these are the products the team at West Coast uses most often. They have also integrated Merchant Services into their company, which Dan contends is a useful complement to their Resource Building Materials retail business.

Much like Citizens Business Bank, West Coast Sand & Gravel was built upon a customer-focused approach to business. The key to developing long-lasting business relationships comes from prioritizing customers above all else. “It’s all about personal relationships. Vince Gottuso, the Bank’s Center Manager, has done an excellent job. He has a very strong team that backs him up. The customer is king for sure,” asserts Dan. “Vince will say, I’m going to go to work here for you. I’m going to get a solution for you, and it makes me feel special as a customer.”

Marv, Dan, and their team regularly involve Citizens Business Bank in major decisions relating to the growth of their company. West Coast Sand & Gravel has witnessed steady growth through more than 50 years of business, and they’ve been a loyal customer of the Bank for more than 20 of those years. The company continues to grow and diversify their business model, and they take comfort in knowing Citizens Business Bank is there to support them with a full suite of financial products and services.
