In the course of executing our business, especially in the Commercial and Industrial segments, Sprague works with a number of firms to assist in servicing our customers.  This can be simply hiring freight companies to haul the fuel to our customers in order to be a one-stop shop for the customer, to a much more complicated arrangement when we are purchasing a customer’s inventory in a buy-back deal.  In a more complex job, we may partner with several firms, such as freight specialists, mechanical contractors, welders, and environmental firms.
