Another big step in S. M. Wilson’s long range succession plan took place today when we announced that our employees have completed the acquisition of the company from Scott Wilson through their Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). Although originally planned to be completed at a later date, our strong revenue projections convinced us that now was a good time to give our employees full ownership of the company through their retirement plan and to share in the profits of the company. Most of our 140 employees participate in the ESOP, and we are truly excited!

For example, the growing popularity of online classes and distance learning can reduce the size of lecture halls and increase the use of video technology in the classroom. Higher Education students are now encouraged to collaborate on projects in small groups, which requires numerous gathering spaces where discussion and interaction can take place inside classroom buildings. At many colleges and universities, the overall focus has shifted from teaching to learning environments.
