We have been investing heavily in all aspects of our business this year which we anticipate will yield positive results for us in the future.”

We will also continue to leverage our engineering and manufacturing expertise and strong customer relationships to develop new cutting-edge technologies and advanced products that solve technological challenges faced by our customers and deliver exceptional value for our shareholders.” continued Mr. Govil.
