Dear founders, stakeholders and Friends of AppliTek
I would like to extend a special word of thanks and gratitude today to the founders of AppliTek, and in particular to the founding father Mr. J. Laurier.
Thanks to Mr. J. Laurier's and his spouses' boldness and vision back in 1985, AppliTek would not have been where it is today.
A vibrant company active in 100+ countries, and on the fast track, with new innovations and applications born every week!
As the President & CEO of AppliTek, I'm particularly proud of my parents Mr. and Mrs. Laurier, and proud of our employees, some of which already work for more than 20 years in our company. I would like to thank them for their confidence in AppliTek.
With modesty and prudence, I'm happy to inform you that AppliTek's strategy adopted end of 2008 has yielded good looking fruits. We kept on investing in innovation and internationalization last year and in Q1/2010. Many new products were born and are now fueling our growth throughout 2009 and into Q2-Q3-Q4. Our market channel access strategy has created a vast platform for our products so that companies and authorities now have access to our products and services in 100+ countries on the globe. We have been able to gain more market share, to further improve our liquidity, solvency and profitability ratios and win major projects in most continents.
Thank you founding fathers and mother of AppliTek, thank you employees, thank you to all our stakeholders.
Thanks for your inspiration, motivation, dedication and confidence.
We are well positioned for the future, but we should not forget that what the future holds for us, depends on what we hold for the future. Hard working 'todays' make high-winning 'tomorrows'...
Happy 25th Birthday AppliTek!
