As many of you may know, our corporate home and the home of many of our employees is Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Since the storm hit, I have spoken with many of our employees living and working here and am particularly proud of those who have volunteered to help in the recovery in their own communities.

I am also extremely proud of the staffs at our field service centers who are making sure the normal flow of business is maintained and that we have abundant inventory to satisfy customer needs throughout the country in the weeks ahead.
