Ralph, I want to thank you and your team for coming on site and performing this assessment for us. The attached report is excellent, and we will be meeting on this in the very near future. This comes at a good time as our business has slowed down recently and along with that cost’s reductions are necessary to reduce the pains. We will use this report as a tool to push the executive team to allocate funds into the plant so that we can continue our path forward of reducing our energy consumption and overall cost of operation. The team here will be reviewing this with great detail and will absolutely reach out for any questions or concerns. Again, thank you all very much, your efforts are greatly appreciated!
