Carl H.

TCC and our customers have implemented substantial video communications in an effort to move projects forward. We have seen evidence that certain countries are beginning to loosen restrictions, and TCC is preparing to increase its business development efforts as soon as it is allowed and safe.
Assisting these efforts is the $474,000 loan TCC received under the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program on February 1, 2021. The entire TCC team is committed to doing what is necessary to stay prepared for an expected business upturn in fiscal 2021.”
