Screwed after 30 years of owning 50% of Seegars Fence Co Wilmington. The owner, Clip Davis, was forced to liquidate SFC-Wilmington after Wes Seegars was unwilling to buy Mr. Davis out after 30 years.
Mr. Davis had health issues, including going Blind & back surgery, that made him realize he needed to spend more time with his wife and family instead of working 50-60 hours each week. He made the mistake of assuming that Wes Seegars would be a man of his word and offer a reasonable amount for Mr. Davis' 50% of the business. Instead Mr. Seegars decided to Liquidate Seegars of Wilmington and Re-Open Seegars of New Hanover County.
This got him out of paying Mr. Davis for his 30 years of service and he was able to use the reputation Mr. Davis built in and around southeastern NC to continue as nothing happen. This is just morally wrong, especially concidering Mr. Davis' cercumstances.
I feel everyone should know what a crook he is. Seegars Fence Co of Now New Hanover County is using Mr. Davis' name and saying that "after 30 years of service Clip is retiring...and will always be considered a member of the Seegars Family...etc" Well, if this is how they treat their family, imagine how they are treating you, their customers!!!
I have heard that Mr. Davis' son, Matt, has opened a new fencing company, Davis Fence. I would highly recomend using that company as opposed to Seegars. Mr. Davis and his son, Matt have built Seegars in Southeastern NC, and I have no doubt that Matt will do the same with Davis Fence Co despite being screwed in the past!
Good luck to this family. It's amazing how the honest, hard working, family oriented person who thought he was doing the right thing ended up getting screwed by a greedy SOB. I wish Mr. Seegars father & mother knew what he truly did to a "family member" (Mr. Davis), they were old school and would Not have allowed it!
