Great. So we will go ahead and get started. I am Molly McGarrett, I am a research associate here at JPMorgan on the business and education services team. And I would like to introduce this afternoon the team from American Reprographics. We have Chairman, President and CEO, Suri Suriyakumar, and CFO, John Toth; and COO, Dilo Wijesuriya. So I will hand it over to you guys.
Thanks, Molly. Good afternoon, guys. So four of you, it’s easy to talk to. It’s almost like an individual meeting. So going through this forward-looking statements, go past that. So the overview. Fundamentally, we are still the largest document solutions provider in our space, the biggest company by far. The industry we serve is known as AEC, architecture, engineering and construction companies. And we also provide similar to services to what you refer to non-AEC costumers. In other words who are not construction related.
But in the AEC segment, we are by far the largest company. The only national service provider. There are so many reprographers. Once upon a time we used to have as many as 3000 reprographers in the industry, much less now after this downturn. But we are the national service provider, times larger than the next largest competitor. About 200 locations and 43 states. 120,000 customers in more than 6000 facilities management contracts which means that those are actually services we provide for our customers in their offices. 200 locations on the ground. And then, acquired more than 140 companies since 1998. That has been our -- acquisition was a major part for our growth during the early years and strong historical performance.
