development of the activities over in Tulsa. However, we are concentrating
more on how to build our business, as opposed to what others might be doing.
We have had good success at gaining customers and keeping them, even though
Mr. Young is correct about Oklahoma's product development industrial base.
It is an interesting concept - fractional ownership. However, after being in
the SLA / RP business for a while, we have a clear understanding that the
vast majority of quality in an SLA part comes after the platform is raised
out of the resin. Besides, Shared Replicators is not a service bureau,
