"I think 15–20% growth year over year for the near-term is achievable," states Schumacher. "With the additional floor space—just over 11,000 square feet—we've been able to organize the facility for maximum productivity and we are increasing employee skill sets on a daily basis. To be able to grow production output and revenues without adding significant headcount is the primary objective and I have every confidence that we will do this."
