    They knew what we wanted, and they were really gung ho on not only meeting our needs, but really exceeding and putting up a facility that we could be proud of and they could be proud of … My experience with Quattlebaum Development Company was all positive.

    When we decided to expand, the development company that absolutely was going to come with that was Quattlebaum Development Company. They will do everything they can to get you in on time. They went beyond what they had to do to get us in the building.

    The Quattlebaums were kind enough, flexible enough, easy enough to work with. That gave us the best advantage of moving forward. Flexibility is the key word there -- the ability to think through things, the ability to execute and to get the job done. They have the ability to deliver on time and on budget.

    After we began our lease, some little things had to be handled -- small issues when we were expanding, like grading some areas and moving some power lines -- and they have been very accessible. They are straightforward business guys, and nothing that we have needed has been denied. I think that this has been a real win/win situation.
