We appreciate your clear indication of where your core competency is and where it is not. We already have ample in-house competencies in vibration and lubricant analysis, which we utilize thoroughly. We are very aware of a competitive external market for services and technologies in these fields. Hence, we were a little skeptical before you came to present. Yet, we understand you focus on the consolidation and the further processing of results from these analyses, which may eventually allow us longer-term planning and refined understanding of our equipment.

This is indeed an interesting field – more than a niche – where we will consider working with you.
