    Anyone in the Detroit MI area ever have to bid against Torre & Bruglio for a Maintenance contract. How did it go?

    We are submitting a bid for 30 acres of mowing in an industrial park. Wouldn't be a bad contract to get.

    Just the sheer size of their outfit would intimidate me. But as you know size is not everything. I heard something (rumor) about them last year that kind of shocked me. I won't say what it was but I was disappointed to say the least.

    Good Luck on your bid.

    Almost bid against them but didnt. I showed up to the bid meeting to see it go down but did not walk in after seeing there was only three people in the room.(too personal) The bid reqiured some major referneces like three years of reference for big scale cutting. The bid was for the county parks which are many acres.(30+) That company has a big name but i dont know anything else about them other than they do mostly commercial.


    Good luck.

    I considered it. Heavily! They do the GM World Headquarters located in Grand Blanc and I feel I can do a better job. (Not to mention I'm already right there on one of my stops). CCLC, Have you ever looked at this place? Hey, incidentally, are you guys going to the MDLA show? If so, perhaps we can make arrangements to meet up for lunch.

    Did you submit a proposal for the GM property?

    I plan on going to the MDLA trade show, not sure what day yet.

    No, I opted not to submit it. I bet it's a high payer, though!

    Runner - that rumour that you heard is probably more fact than rumour - it was all over the Detroit Free Press/News last year.

    Yeah! What rumour? You have our attention now! Are you talking about the pay of the headquarters contract? Private message it if you like.
