I appreciate working with Cyrus Chin and Philip Dunlap, as well as the other professionals at the firm.  They continue to provide service to XL Parts at the highest level.  The team did a great job working with us to acquire the business of Blues Auto Parts in Louisiana. It was no surprise, as they always deliver.
