"Enhancing supplier diversity is an important way we fulfill our customers' expectations and set the competitive standard in our industry. A diverse network of vendors and contractors can enhance the efficiency of our operations and help us deliver value to shareholders."
-- Juan Luciano, Chairman and CEO
