Here's how we ended up take work from a regional, they were given the entire state by the national. One day all our orders were cancelled and we found out they had given all the work to this out of state contractor. It was the beginning of December and the prospect of having our largest client removed going into the dead of winter was not encouraging. So, like the schmuck I am, I contacted this newly formed regional to keep the same work coming albeit at a drop in price. This was to hold us over until I found something else to fill the void. I did this with great trepidation and it was not worth it. However, it was not even three months until the national pulled back territories from them. This has made us quite happy again because, believe it or not, we like the national we deal with. A hungry man does need a lecture, he needs a job. (Well, that and a sandwich).
