That's funny. As of a couple of weeks ago, the fool was telling me there was not a board for BAU. Now I see that the last message was from 7/20/98!!??

As of just over a week ago, I no longer work for Bacou USA. I was with Howard Leight Industries (HLI) for nearly five years. I busted open Mexico, Canada and South America for HLI. HLI was a lean, mean, money making machine until we were bought by Bacou.

Bacou is a strong company with an excellent position in the market. Walter has publicly stated that he plans to continue growth by buying companies in industrial safety to add on to the team.

Management is miserable, but the company's market position will make it a good investment until competition wakes up. Any company in industrial safety who markets and sells aggressively and creatively (something very lacking in the industry) stands to win BIG. Fortunately for Bacou, most of the competition's top management is just as lacking in vision, creativity and efficiency as the others.

Need more info? I am here. I will not give any info that I feel is unethical to give, let alone illegal.

FYI: I am holding onto my BAU stocks. I see good things coming for BAU overall.
