GSSI enjoyed record high sales during 2017 and we are excited to continue this momentum into the new year.
To continue to effectively serve the domestic US market, we will reorganize into four regional territories to support in select targeted applications. For 2018, the concrete inspection, non-destructive test and utility locating markets will be served by Application Specialists based in the Northeast, Southeast, Northwest and Southwest.
