We are excited about the new facility, 42 acre complex and additional office and warehouse space to give us the room to grow and serve our customers for years to come.” Ward concluded, “Despite these challenging economic times there are clearly opportunities in the marketplace and it is our responsibility to work exceedingly hard to find them for our customers.
