Consregions are territorial, not people friendly in the regions, some regions not cooperative or trustworthy of corporate or their initiatives, industries served are hard hit by recessionary cycles and oil price volitility causes greater risks to be taken at the same gross profit

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
