Access to a more extensive rental fleet with the addition of large mining equipment means a greater opportunity to serve our local market. I also want to emphasize that the people behind Blue Diamond are the bedrock of this company. There will be no workforce reductions, but the larger and more complex fleet and customer base will provide additional career development opportunities for our people."
