“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.”  

 -Jim Rohn

2017 has been an impactful year at General Kinematics, with new innovations, new markets, and new employees driving excitement within our organization. GK is growing and it is thanks to all who put their time, effort, and faith into our company and products. As 2018 approaches we look forward to continuing our growth internally and around the world. With the addition of groundbreaking new products, 2018 is looking to be an exciting and influential year for us and I am elated to go into the next year with the hardworking team we have here at GK.

To our customers, I want to thank you for being a big part of the innovation that takes place within General Kinematics. Every processing issue you face gives us the opportunity to better our equipment to help you succeed. To meet those needs, sometimes we need to think outside the box and create new ways of using vibration to solve your most difficult process problems. As we strive to be the best in the market there is no greater driving factor than you.

During this holiday season, I want to wish all of you a happy and safe time spent with family and friends. We look forward to spending the rest of 2017 with you all and working together in the new year.
