There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person’s lawful prey.

There is hardly anything in the seating world that Cogent cannot make a lot better and still sell at a realistic price, and people who appreciate that are astute business people.
