We anticipate strong growth for at least the next few years as the North American Original Equipment Manufacturers ("OEMs") streamline their operations and outsource the sub-assembly of components.
There is plenty in the pipeline with new technologies, new models and pressure to improve the performance of vehicles and reduce their emissions. We will bid on new business only when we can be sure that we have the personnel and resources to deliver.
When there is substantive news we issue press releases, which you can find here or on SEDAR.
