David Balestrery of Sentry was the first potential buyer to offer us everything we were looking for. Of course, the purchase price was important, but perhaps of greater importance was the answer to the question of what would happen to our employees and how well will the needs to our customers would be met. After doing our own due diligence, we concluded that Sentry was absolutely the best fit for us!”
