End of Quarter 1 Brett Kaufman Quarter one is off to another strong start. We can attribute this mostly to a milder winter than 2014 and stable growth in the U.S. economy. Right now we are seeing nice spending from the Waste, Chemical and Manufacturing sectors, with an increase expected in agricultural toward late spring and early summer. The last few years have provided a nice revenue spike in the industries related to shale activity and drilling for oil/gas. We expect some tightening in these industries due to the reduced oil prices that are hitting the world economy, but still some opportunity as this newer industry looks like it is here to stay in the U.S. All indicators point to an up-tick in oil prices later in the year but it will definitely be something to keep an eye on through the summer of 2015. As always, we appreciate your support and would like to hear any feedback as to how we can improve and make your business run better each day. Thank you again and let’s work together to make 2015 a great year!
