“Your report to us was very thorough and extremely helpful. As a result, the two towing companies are both building Robert Allan designed Z Tech tractor tugs with 6,300 hp and are proceeding to start construction of two additional ones in 2006. In summary, your study and subsequent report has been useful to us and we appreciate your fine work in that regard.”
