During the current and ever-changing health crisis, we would like to ensure our customers that support for all areas of our business will be continued.  In early March we began an extensive ‘work from home’ program that encompasses sales, marketing, administration, research, design and service in order to help provide safety for our employees and efficient support for our customers.  We ask for your patience as calls and requests are processed in a different manner but we will find new and innovative ways to provide the excellent level of support that you deserve.

Stay safe!
