    I hear this is out to bid by Johnson Controls. I got a call from a National saying they were looking to pay $3,000 a branch in PA and NJ. How can anyone do a Bank, especially the old Commerce sites, for that low a price. Sounds like another case of a National coming in and blowing out the locals.

    In Canada they are known as BLJC Brookflield Lepage Johnson Controls. We have worked for them for the last 3 years after they took over a major goverment account from another big player. They always pay on time, in fact their cheques arrive 1 week before they are due but are a bit on the cheap.

    so is that supposed to be 3k per store, you cover it for salt/plowing per season? thats not terrible i guess, but then again, i wouldnt take it... banks are usually 24/7 ice control no matter what, which you could chew up that much in salt in a hard season alone :/

    I got a call from TruGreen. That $3,000 included everything, including salt! I know last year companies were paid 3 times that to service Commerce.
