Good story Bob. MNTX was part of that company a long time ago. I believe it was Carl Icahn that came in to separate the company to get value out. RE- the ice machine business. If I remember right, many of the cranes that company builds are for oil platforms, or maybe that might have been American Hoist? Still infrastructure building should help both companies. I just happen to think mobile cranes is where it's at for a small pure play like MNTX. A restatement of earnings hasn't been released yet, and weighs on the stock.
