For years I visualized BSBSI as this roll-top-desk purveyor of slate blackboards! I entrusted Bay State with almost a dozen different products on a pharmaceutical project with an impossible six-month schedule. It proved to be a prudent decision, as Bay State delivered and installed three-quarters of a million dollars worth of specialties. Bay State is without a doubt the premier specialty contractor in the Greater Boston Area.
