Yep, no problem. Herman Deil (sp?)started (49'?) and ran Giant-Vac until he died around the late 90's. His wife ran it after that. They sold out to Briggs and Stratton in the sometime in the early 00's. Briggs was not able to make a go of it and sold it off (we bid on it). Some past Swisher execs and a financier out of Tennessee bought it and started running it in the old Murray plant 3-4 years ago. They failed miserably getting it off the ground and closed their doors. They then tried to find someone to buy it (including us, again) but after going through that many corporate hands with older technology, weak sales, and a brand name that's weakened due to years of neglect there's nothing of interest to buy.
