Reports of Our Death Greatly Exaggerated

September 23, 2010 -- Recent calls to our office made me think about what Mark Twain said upon hearing that the New York Journal had published his obituary, "the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." 

That sums up the accuracy of reports that VBX is no longer covering the South Texas Region. 

Apparently, that little ditty is making the rounds courtesy of one of our competitors who seem eager to convince our subscribers that their service is about to disappear. 

(Mmmm - wonder if it's a coincidence that both alleged reports were inaccurate since the New York Journal and our competitors are Yankees? Food for thought.) 

Just to set the record straight: 

1. VBX is alive and well, continuing a 110-year tradition of serving the Texas Construction Industry. 

2. We're headquartered in San Antonio so of course we're still covering South Texas. 

3. There are no changes in our coverage area now, nor are there any plans to do so in the future. 

4. The San Antonio Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America is still one of our valued affiliates, even though they're now dating our competitor as well. 

We're sorry that you have been victims of such misleading information but we thank you for letting us know. 

If the "other guy's" reporting is as accurate as their marketing, we're confident that the quality of our services will earn your loyalty (and your business) long into the future!
