According to Command’s Chairman and CEO, Glenn Welstad, “Many of our established branch offices generated record or near-record sales in September and during the quarter; and the results of new branch offices opened during the past few months are in line with, and, in some cases, exceed our expectations. Also, disaster relief and recovery activities, particularly those following Hurricane Isaac, had a growing positive impact on monthly and quarterly revenue; and the company’s presence in this sector continues to expand.”
Mr. Welstad said that, going forward, he expects the company to be even more active in servicing both national accounts and the large number of companies experiencing labor shortages in the Bakken Shale Region of North Dakota. “As a result of our strategic expansion plan and commitment to customer satisfaction, Command now benefits from multiple sources of business revenue throughout many areas of the nation’s economy.
