In addition, the company increased its customer base by 10% and added noteworthy new customers such as Tesla, VW Mexico and Galaxy Technologies to its roster. Growth was also realized with the reacquiring of several past customers. This surge also increased the number of training sessions the company held at its Troy headquarters and onsite at customer facilities.
In addition to adding support team members at its headquarters, the year also saw growth in the number of strategic locations for the company. Personnel and support was added in the Southeast U.S. and Canada, while a new distributor was added in Mexico.
