Testimonial as the contract has progressed: (from email dated 10/4/11)
The tanks really look good and I feel that George and his Crew have gone above and beyond their requirements to satisfy our expectations! You can tell that he and his crew take pride in what they do and like to show it off. That's a good thing.......I think we made a good choice in our selection for the best company to get the job done!”
