2016 was a challenging year with major changes in many areas of Horizon's business. New offices were opened in both the United Kingdom and Italy, keeping the team busy with all of the work associated with new offices.
The low oil prices seen for the last couple of years are impacting our area of the Oil & Gas industry and as is well known, currently the Industry is very challenging environment. However, rather than letting these issues overwhelm us, Horizon's industry leading service and quality have enabled us to finish the year in a strong position with on-going growth and with an extremely positive future ahead.
The IT and Technology business has continued to grow and deliver innovative projects and expert support to our clients; helping them stay up to date with the ever changing IT landscape.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of Horizon's customers, staff and suppliers for all their support throughout the last year, which have enabled us to reach the position that we are now in. We look forward to what 2017 will bring for Horizon.
