To further expand personnel capabilities GSI practices strategic outsourcing for specialty consultants. Many professionals are eager to work with GSI for exposure to the advanced technology and the freedom of expression we can offer. By assembling diverse, project directed, Core Teams we are afforded not only the dedication, experience, and skill of our long-term employees, but new ideas and a broader range of talent. Temporary partners are chosen for their proven expertise and willingness to interact, share with, and grow with GSI personnel. Besides yielding great cost benefits this has strengthened our modest workforce and endowed them with a confidence enabling relaxed professional interaction with other business contacts they might traditionally perceive as outsiders. Very few GSI contacts are considered outsiders for long. The development of strong working relationships with both regular customers and approved suppliers has not only advanced us beyond some of our competitors but has also allowed us to be a part of their growth and improvement. Our customers' needs and satisfaction always remain GSI's top priority. We are very aware that that degree of satisfaction has been strengthened, over the years, by key suppliers who have continued to provide the very best in products and service. Foremost among our top suppliers are TOOL & ABRASIVES SALES CO, Z-Mike, and Zontec Corp.
