I know its not, I am just curious of how you've changed and grown since the last photo which just contained the 2 FL70's your long bed GMC and I believe an F550? If I am thinking of the right thread..

We've added more innovative equipment....we'll leave it in suspense for now.

In addition, we just hired four more guys full time with benefits in the past three months. So I would say we are definitely growing in a volitale time. The spring looks quite promising for us and we are currently maxed with our equipment, thus things will need to change once again.

Hey How do you operate in the winter months with "Full Time" employees? Assuming you don't do any more commercial snow removal

We keep our selves pretty occupied, working on equipment, trade shows, etc. You can push on with some site work as long as you are careful with what you do and take the right precautions. You make the most of the good days you have.

We also have a bunch of custom cut paver work for one upcoming project that we are doing at our shop, will repalletize, and will take it to that project this spring.

Guys will take layoff if its really necessary, but the work is there and if we don't get on top of it by spring, we will be bottlenecked.

We're just changing the graphics some, not the tag line. We incorporated over a year ago and needed to change things anyway. If I'm going to have to do that, I'll change a couple other things. The website will be getting an overhaul too. Its 3 years old and needs a facelift. I've seen some preliminaries for the new one and it'll put our current site to shame.

Yes we still have the 550.
