The business has made a huge impact on the local economy over the last two decades, so we wanted to acknowledge and say “thank you” to all of Greenfield’s employees for the major part of the ongoing success of the company. Which I’m sure we will see the company grow further over the next thirty years as we continue to offer our customers engineering excellence.”
