|If there’s a theme to this week’s newsletter, it’s expansion. Our stories detail three dealer expansions, a new expanded facility for a major manufacturer, a 25th anniversary for another and a large order to augment a rental fleet.
No matter what the economic indicators are telling us, all this activity surely reflects vibrancy in the market and shows that businesses are investing and planning for growth. Are these enterprises concerned about the future? Clearly not. Their only concern is that if you’re not moving forward, you’re slipping backwards.
So, with that in mind, onwards and upwards .
