During the past decade, we experienced extraordinary growth and change here at Kemp International, thanks to our continued commitment to teamwork, technology-focused product strategies and to our policy of placing the trust of our customers above all else. We've successfully achieved significant design advancements and strengthened our position as the premier manufacture and developer of merging new technology into people's everyday life. Even in the face of challenging economic conditions, we're finding new ways to take advantage of the evolving industry landscape to ensure Kemp remains the brightest on the hill.
The upcoming years will be exciting as we continue to broaden our business efforts and move from promise to product. To Europe, then to US, we set increasingly ambitious goals for ourselves. but we have the intense vision and resources to achieve them. We have experience, knowledge and expertise to bring nice specialty products to market. Simultaneously, we plan to continue responding to market challenges and expand out lines of product in order to engage a wider customer base.
Our progress in the immediate future will be measured in terms of our ability to forge strategic alliances in the global marketplace. We plan to be broadening our relationships with partners that will yield the best long-term value for all parties involved-and that includes the customer.
I praise each of our employees for making these past years such an exhilarating success, even in turbulent times. I would also like to extend my thanks to our customers and suppliers for their supporting, without which our flame would surely have burnt itself out long ago.
