Being privately held, we answer to you, not to Wall Street. And this is to your advantage because we view relationships for the long term. Private ownership is a key component of our company culture that is the basis for a wide range of decisions and best practices.
The independence of being privately held has also allowed us to grow organically and strategically. Our senior management has chosen to acquire customers rather than competitors. The results of this strategy are stronger and longer lasting relationships. Customers deserve our focus to be maintaining their facilities instead of maintaining stock value.
