        business that is, in their own words "one of the largest manufacturers of portable crushers, screeners, trommels and conveyors in North America"  That totally sounds like a small business to me.

        •  I'm pretty sure the "small" in small business (0+ / 0-)

          refers to a small number of owners. So it doesn't really match up with common perception.

          •  Well, that's just a crap definition (1+ / 0-)

            of small.  And I'm pretty sure that small business under government definition means less than a certain number of employees, not the number of owners.

            •  Never mind, you are correct. (0+ / 0-)

              Somehow I thought I remembered that "small business" was an IRS term and only referred to the number of owners.  
              According to the Small Business Administration:

              Depending on the industry, size standard eligibility is based on the average number of employees for the preceding twelve months or on sales volume averaged over a three-year period.
