      “We believe in the adage that no matter what our lot in life, we should build something on it,” said Reid. “There are much larger competitors; however, due to the highly capable team that we are honored to work with, we can be proud of our past results as we strive for future growth. We are especially grateful to all of our channel partners, including customers, suppliers, APSG associates, and, in particular, team members for their unwavering dedication to outstanding customer service.”
