    The recent cold weather should increase profits

    • Jeff Badgeley's third quarter comments on slack sales for Miller Ind. products, cannot be attributed to weather. Talking from experience of over 67 years in the towing business we have never once made a equiptment purchase based on weather. Small independant tow companies have banded together to boycott Miller
      Equiptment due to the Road One entry into the marketplace. The
      only upward turn Miller stock will make is after they dissolve

      • Stop your pissing and moaning about Miller being your competition. You're probably one of those towers doing $11 AAA tows
        well below your cost of operation. Your disbanded industry has beat each other into the ground since the beginning of time. When
        an organization comes in (Miller) and attempts to bring stability to your industry and increase your profits, you slap them in
        the head. What in the hell is wrong with you? What have individual towers done for each other but cut their own throats. Why in
        the world do you towers take on business for less than your costs? If you can explain this to me, then you have a an argument to
        your boycott. Otherwise, don't bite the hand which is attempting to bring stability to your industry. How in the world anyone can
        stay in business without making a profit? Remember profit is not a dirty word? Tell me how Miller has affected your profits? They
        have not brought any towers into the industry that didn't already exists. Also, they are not buying non-profitable companies. I
        am sick and tired of this argument. You know as well as I that Miller Industries makes the best towing equipment in the
        industry. As you state, independent towing companies have banded together to boycott Miller. Why and the hell have they not banded
        together to make a profit. Instead they cut each other throat by doing tows for less than the cost of operation. Give me a break!!!!!
