The press release quoted CEO Steven A. L'Heureux who noted, “Our priority in adopting new technology is to rapidly scale our production facilities to accommodate the increased demand we are seeing for our Ryko products as well as the related parts required for Ryko roll-over and MacNeil conveyor systems.
