Celebrating the People that Make US Great    
The Fourth of July holiday unofficially marks the midpoint of the summer-does summer really go that fast? And it's a time to celebrate many things: the courage of the U.S. founders, our shared American values and the good life that we lead.
Here at Smart Vision Lights, I also like to think about the talent and dedication of the people who help make this company an innovative leader in machine vision. As with every good business, our employees are SVL's greatest asset. Their hard work makes our success possible. And all of us can take pride that our machine vision products and services help to make the world a better place, contributing in small ways to the pursuit of happiness that is at the core of Fourth of July celebrations.
On behalf of SVL, I want to wish all of you a glorious Fourth, filled with family, friends and the best of times.
