The Company plans to expand the use of this strategy through organic growth into multiple stores and the acquisition of profitable industrial gas companies throughout the United States in 2017 and beyond.
"We spent 2015 and 2016 proving our model, that by using MagneGas2® as a door opener, we are able to achieve growth rates that far surpass our competitors. Now we intend to focus on an accelerated growth strategy of industrial gas company acquisitions coupled with organic expansion. We are confident this will accelerate our revenue growth through 2017 and beyond.
