"Quiet Company"?

My family and I were traveling down the Indiana Turnpike headed to Chicago last week and noticed a couple FR billboards. They proudly proclaimed to be the "Quiet Company." My wife and I couldn't figure out what that meant. Any ideas what that motto means?

Crickets...and there you have it!

Just kidding. Actually, I have not heard or seen that before and have no idea what it means.

apparently, FR has been known by that name for some time.

an article from 2005, about Buffett buying FR, mentions FR being called "The Quiet Company". look at the column to the right, under "About Forest River".
