"I am excited about the tremendous market opportunity," Davis said.
"Both Avidex and DNG enjoy an impressive group of blue chip customers
that are very loyal based on their past collaborations with the team.
Many of these customers have facilities across the nation and in some
cases around the globe. We are focused on making sure we maintain our
high standards for customer experience while expanding our geographical
footprint, either through partnerships or expansion, so that we are able
to consistently meet the needs of these customers."
