well its 120 guys in 20 smaller locations we have about 6 guys per location that was setup in 2- 3 men crews we also use day loborors as needed so we have about 40 more guys we can call in times of needs.

we plan to split these crews into a 2 man per truck this spring to help in growth at this point.


we are also planning to launch 15 new business locations of 1 or 2 men. In northern alabama this spring as well as long as it feels non insulting i will speak on thee business .
