"As was demonstrated by notable project wins in the quarter, the sales team is executing well and our work to build relationships with key project partners is starting to pay off.  The multi-unit order for a Long Island school district, the full turnkey order from a New Jersey developer we have worked closely with in the past, continued growth in the indoor ag market for our chillers, the repeat order from Stanley Black & Decker, and announcement of our third project with FirstService Residential all are notable accomplishments that drove backlog well above management's goal of delivering at least $10 million in quarterly backlog," said Benjamin Locke, Co-Chief Executive Officer.
