We are now in the process of developing new branch offices at three to four locations where we have customers with existing business operations.”
Mr. Welstad noted, “Command Center has been able over the past two years to broaden and strengthen its reach into a wider range of service needs. The ability to identify and respond to a growing demand for our services has been a catalyst for the company’s growth, and we are confident in the ability of our people and systems to help Command be even more successful going forward.”
