Well, what can we all say, Berks is on our side, they are not our enemy. they have been on our side since the 1800's. they opened up back then, and they are still here now.

It is a wonderful thing that they are doing promoting breast cancer, but it is all a stunt to regain themselves. My father gave them 30 yrs of his life, and all they liked to do is crap on their employees.

I think this truck is great. We have to remember that no matter what you think about Berks Products, the truck is for a great cause! People need to focus on the meaning of this truck and stop making it all about them...CMM257 this comment is for you!! If you have nothing better to do than post nasty comments, then you shouldn't even be on these sites. Stop ruining a great article and find someone else to bash. Berks Products is a great company...or they wouldn't have been in business for all of these years. Even in tough economic times, they still don't forget about giving back to the community. And who knows when this terrible disease could affect you or one of your family members....that will be the time that you will regret posting such a horrible comment. When someone you know needs treatment and they may have to go to St. Joseph's Hospital, then you will be thanking Berks Products. One last thing...get a life and start thinking about the importance of helping fundraise for a terrible disease! If you are free tomorrow....maybe call Berks Products and order concrete....help the cause, and make a difference instead of wasting everyone's time with your ridiculous comments.

Sorry, I wouldn't order concrete from this company if my life depended on it. This company may have been in business for many years, but this company does not treat their employees fair, and they are a big rip off. They are losing business left and right. My father worked for Berks for just shy of 30 years and since he is working for competition, he hears all the bad things that go on with Berks. Everyone of the guys that he used to work with at the one plant no longer work for Berks because of their work practices. Ok, maybe them supporting breast cancer is a good thing, and yes I have lost family members to various forms of cancer. They are just trying to make themselves look good. This is a free country, and I will make whatever comments I like. If you don't like what i'm saying, take your problems elsewhere.
