I thought you guys would be a long time company with the variety of equipment and the work you guys work on.

Gravel Rat thats a long time for a construction company in NA. In fact most construction outfits started during WW2 or shortly after it. Of course you wouldnt have a clue because you dont really work in construction.

What Gravel Rat was trying to say was, "Yeah, I figured that ya'll had been in the business for quite a while." He wasn't trying to say that they hadn't. Try and read into things a little more before you jump to conclusions.

Man you guys have some sweet equipment. I love that "new" Mack Granite. The green in the hubs is a nice touch.
