Q & A

sizes through the Gunnebo manufacturing facility and then into that Western European location. So, we have a couple of things not only from the sales perspective, but things we can do to increase that vector utilization and then certainly looking at anything where we might be able to do just a little bit more aggressive pricing program then they may have done in the past in some specific regions. So, it's really a combination of multiple things that we are looking at on the Gunnebo side.

Got it. And then the corollary to that was timeframe, but unless you want to get tied into that?

Executive
Karen Colonias

Yes. I mean, we are only year two into our integration at large parts of our year one was divesting of the Poland and Romania part of that business. The strategy of what we are doing with the Swedish part of the Gunnebo business has not changed. We are introducing those products into Western Europe in the first quarter of this year, which is exactly on track as our plan was. So I think it's a little bit things are progressing nicely, but again we are just in year two of this integration plan.
