We are truly grateful for the support, collaboration and strong bonds we have with our customers and partners around the world. We have been afforded a successful and exciting year in 2016 due to our relationships with each of you.
LINK continues to invest and focus on providing global test solutions, positioning ourselves to maximize the value we bring to your operations. In 2016, one specific area of our growth occurred through the establishment of our first facility in Italy. LINK plans for steady growth in 2017 as we continue to offer support for your greatest needs, from developing advanced technologies for addressing specific applications, to increasing our capabilities at LINK test facilities around the world.
On behalf of the Link family, I also want to extend a deep appreciation for our LINK employees in supporting our customers worldwide.
I am thrilled to report that 2016 also brought the arrival of the next generation of the Link family, as Adam and Kim Link welcomed their baby boy, Wolfgang Victor Link.
We wish you and yours a wonderful and safe holiday season, and we look forward to working with you in the new year!
