Permatherm is a well-established company that manufactures cold
storage insulating foam, panels and pipe coverings.  It started
business in 1987.

Although the financial health of any firm is always a matter of
interpretation, here is some of the information available on
Permatherm taken from various financial databases to which I have

Permatherm Inc. 
269 Industrial Park Dr.
Monticello, Georgia 31064

Tel:  (706) 468-7500 
Fax: (706)468-7510

The company has annual sales of approximately $8.8 milion generated by
50 employees, for a sales-per-employee ratio of $176,000.

The copmany's officers include:
Vickie Sargent - Office Manager
Frank Treadwell - Manager
Milton Swords - President

One added note:  Permatherm is in the process of building a website

Although there is no information posted there now, you may want to
check it from time to time to see if they become operational.

I hope this is the information you need.  If anything requires
clarification, just let me know through a Request for Clarification,
and I'll be happy to assist you further.
