Not sure if it is a bank or a holding company, remember they have an MCI South company also.

I might log in on the webcast. I could use some stuff.

I went to L&L's auction awhile ago. Some of them clowns were buying stuff at the auction for just about what you could buy it new for.

One guy bought (4) greenlee 555 with EMT shoes for $4700 each. They were beat looking.

Pony threaders went for $900, no dies.

It's amazing that a company could have that many trucks and not have the business sense to make money with them.

big union shop. alot of prevailing wage/government work. High material and labor costs, long waits for money. Retainage is a killer.

Low productivity, tight margins, you see where this is going.

Eventually, Peter didn't have enough money to rob to pay Paul with. They bought JRH Electric some years back - MCI South.

Not sure if it was bad business sense, or unfortunate circumstances that led to this.

Sounds like a cash flow accident waiting to happen...we're doing $10,000,000 a year (and loosing $500,000 a year).

Iwire... I beg to disagree. A van like that...lots of visibility, lots of working space inside .... add a wheelchair lift, and loading job boxes a breeze!

The best feature, of course, is sever seats filled with grade schoolers- great for those attic and under-house crawls!

Most likely both, along with manufacturing operations, leaving Jersey for a more frendly state.

Bob, do you want me to bid on that bus for you?

He had more inventory, then some of our supply houses, looking at all the ladders, i wonder why his guys, had to borrow one of our ladders on a job.
