And as an engineering services company, DISTek is very focused on our client’s future technology needs. A large percentage of our customers are tied to the off-highway equipment sector, where vehicles and equipment are being developed to meet the worlds growing needs for food, power, and infrastructure. Helping advocate for this sector is just another way that I, as well as DISTek, can serve this great industry and contribute to advancing technology."
