9 YEARS WITH PROTEX
By: Corrin Boyd
“We are celebrating nine years….. This is a remarkable feat! Each and every one of you made the decision to take a journey with ProTex. This journey has led down some very fun and exciting roads. Some of them we have even paved ourselves (pun intend-
ed). There are many roads that still lay ahead of us. We can’t go down every road, but as we stand at this crossroad, we have a decision to make. Do we press on and take a new journey or stay where we are at? I can assure you we will not stay where we are at. The possibilities on future roads for ProTeX
are endless. We’ve already seen so many exciting things such as a mobile lab, ProTeX family members, and partnering with other companies. This is just to mention a few. So let’s be prepared at ProTeX for the road trips that are to come. Thank you for being the best traveling companions.” -Wes Gage (CEO)
