We have a strong market presence in our core markets, thanks to our loyal customers who appreciate our products and their excellent performance. This year we will introduce a new product-line, which I am sure will be appreciated by our customers. Despite recent difficult conditions in the marketplace we have a strong belief in the future growth of our company. We have many strengths, the main one being dedicated co-workers who have shown their loyalty to the company in these turbulent times."
