We have also kept our key fleet customers abreast of the new EKO-FLOR™ design and performance characteristics. The results of Vanguard's internal testing are very encouraging and our sales team is actively speaking with accounts to give them the opportunity to specify EKO-FLOR™ on existing and future orders."
