It might prove interesting if INC, could assess what impact membership in the INC. 500 has on a company's future, if any. We expect that the positive impact of membership in the group is greater than would at first be expected.

Our desire to maintain the performance level and image that helped us achieve INC. 500 membership in 1982 provided some motivation for our business decisions. Our latest achievement is the introduction of guaranteed products, an industry first.
