As January begins, we reflected on our accomplishments and success stories during 2019. We are grateful for the dedication of our employees, customers, vendors, and partners.
2019 brought many new experiences, including exhibiting at new trade shows such as MJBizCon, since we now offer a wide array of processing solutions for the cannabis and hemp industry at every stage of production. Offering turnkey projects for the cannabis industry opens many doors for SPEC and our confectionery brand, Candy Worx. The acquisition by Gray in April also provides SPEC with the capital resources to continue growing.
The past year was also focused on giving back to the community. SPEC employees spent several hours volunteering at the local food pantry, participating in a 5K for a conservation fund, packing food for the needy, volunteering time at many industry organizations, and hosting events such as High School Shadow Day, Junior Engineers Summer Camp, and Strike Out Hunger that raised over $4,500 for Green Harvest Food Pantry.
As we head into 2020, our most important mission continues to be providing you with the very best design, quality, and service.
