We are an established company that has grown organically for 10 years. We are in a market with potential for massive growth in street legal electric vans and trucks. With the additional working capital we can grow at even greater rates than before. The vehicles we import are in the 3.5 tonne and less category and are ideal for councils, local authorities, NHS Trusts etc. We are already selling to these customers with our current range of electric industrial vehicles. In June this year we supplied 15 road legal vans to the London Bike Scheme to tow the bikes on trailers around the city of London. This is a very high profile account and we have also received orders for similar vehicles for football clubs, military bases and hospitals. We are launching a new vehicle in the 3.5 tonne market at the beginning of December. Already we have 30 requests for trials from councils up and down the country. The current government initiatives are additional incentives for our customers to buy

The OpalTec business strategy is always to look beyond individual economic cycles and focus on capturing long-term growth trends, even during economic downturns as severe as that of the past two years. We are constantly looking to enliven old entrenched processes with new workable ideas. Naturally, we also have the ability to make short-term adjustments that minimise the impact of the recession and allow us to capitalise on any recovery as it takes hold. That is why in late 2007, as markets were coming off their peaks, we took the decision to begin making difficult but necessary cuts in overheads and staff levels. As a result of our forward thinking OpalTec has weathered this most recent market downturn better than most companies.
