    In order of probability 1.Wilson 2. AAA cooper 3. Southeastern. Certainly look for them to try and purchase one of the above to fill in their coverage in the southeast.

    I beg to differ with you Misfit73. I don't work for Wilson but they did do Interline for us at Watkins until the buyout. Wilson is a sorveign company or should i say they have no debt they pay for everything they buy. They are a very conservative family owned company in my views and really are a hard company to work for from what I have seen. They have very little turn over in my area. The only way I would for see Wilson selling is if the family would want out. But then again WML sold out.

    They all tell you they have no intention of selling, that is to keep you satisfied and working hard. Then someone ups the price and bam! you have new owners.
