Chairman of the Board of Directors, Joe Etchart of Glasgow, MT, added, "It's great to be where we're at, on a very solid and profitable base, but we've also got the equipment and logistics for additional runs. We'll keep pushing for new contracts and, especially as the economy continues to get its legs back, we can only go up the list."
