We’re providing more solutions.” Going forward, Justin says that the company is planning to set up satellite offices soon in Louisiana and Pennsylvania, while Chad says, “We want to provide the industry with more efficient and safer methods of delivering various services based on key research and data. We want to be leaders on the deployment of technology and digital integration. Our goal is to deploy technology and to see how we can utilize the data that we’ve got to touch more of the value chain of our customers and to diversify. That’s a win for us – knowing that we can step back and be satisfied with what type of organization we are and being an all-solutions provider to our customers. And the market is speaking for our niche. It has shown a bend towards us.” PREFERRED VENDOR n Cross Country Infrastructure Services
