The Fiberglass Tank Solutions Motto

It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money… that’s all. But when you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because what you designed and purchased was incapable of doing what it was expected to do.

The Common Law of Business Balance prohibits paying very little and getting a lot… it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder or the cheapest product, it is well-advised to add contingency costs due to the risk you run. If you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better!
