Further, it demonstrates our commitment to growing our distribution network, enhancing our value-add solutions capabilities, and complementing our strong mechanical and fluid power product platforms. We are also excited to welcome the strong management team and workforce at Zeller, led by Gary Haseley to the Kaman family.
