Dear Friends of RONCO,
In what seems to be a blink of an eye, another year has come to a close and it’s now time for us to welcome 2017. I am hoping that 2016 was a good year for all of you and that 2017 will be even better.
2016 was an exciting year for RONCO. It was a year of growth, innovation and expansion. But none of that could have been possible without your contribution and the dedication of our employees. In 2016, we focused greatly on product development and launched 16 new products. We have also expanded in China with acquisition of Yusu Gloves, broadening our line and reach further.
We celebrated our 20th anniversary this year and we are very proud of that milestone. When we began in 1996, our vision was to be a leader in the PPE industry, however during these 20 years of growth we never lost sight of our mission to always provide consistent quality of products and services to all of our customers.
We are excited to usher in 2017. We will continue to focus on our growth in Canada, United States and China. We are working to deliver the best possible products, solutions and service to each of these very distinct and unique markets.
As it has been since our inception, innovation and R&D is always at the center of what we do and this year is no exception. We will continue to develop cutting edge safety products and are planning on introducing some very unique products to the marketplace. Our R&D department has also been hard at work and we have partnered with Canada’s top engineering university to develop unique products that will take safety equipment to a new level!
However, no matter how much we innovate or how many new products we develop, we know that the true measure of our success is our customers and we know that none of this would be possible without your support. We will continue to serve you with the same dedication and passion that we have done for the past 20 years.
In closing, I would once again like to thank each one of you - customers, end-users, vendors, employees and all of our partners, for your continued support.
Wishing you a successful, happy and healthy 2017!
