– A lot has happened during this time. There are plenty of memories of the many memorable moments with colleagues, customers, and suppliers, which I have been lucky to meet during these years. On the other hand, I have come to know many of you via phone or email, yet many of you feel like old acquaintances. For all these years, I have gotten to do work I enjoy, for that, I sincerely thank every one of you. Thank you!
