Prospects for continued growth in product support and rental business remain positive. CIMCO is also expanding its product support, reflecting its strong presence and solid reputation as a leader in the key markets it serves," continued Mr. Medhurst. "The diversity of our geographical landscape and markets served, extensive product and service offerings and financial strength combined with a disciplined operating culture, position us well for the long term."
