"Success in entering a new territory involves making a good impression on customers immediately and steadily gaining market share," said David R. Butsack, Vice President, logistics and analysis at American PowerNet. "In starting up our operations in Illinois, we feel the processing solutions from EC Infosystems will give us an edge."
