Our 85 employees are also excited and proud to be in a company investing in modern technology. I do not doubt that the future offers solutions and opportunities that I have never thought about."

In that part of the equation, there is no doubt that the machine makes fewer errors than a human would do, and the speed is also higher and with fewer stops than a person could handle."
