For our first official post, we'd like to toot our own horn a bit by celebrating our receipt of the Duro-Last Golden Eagle award, which was presented to us at Duro-Last's 2014 National Sales Seminar in January 2014. We're very proud of receiving this award, which is presented to authorized Duro-Last contractors for sales excellence. This is the third consecutive year that we've received the Golden Eagle award - in fact, Royalty was Duro-Last's second largest contractor in the United States in 2013. Duro-Last's array of products and their support to our business over the years have significantly contributed to our business growth. But the bulk of our success is primarily due to the dedication of the entire Royalty team. We're looking forward to another great year in 2014!
