John - I am at home. I have a day off today. It’s my first day off in two weeks.
By the way, Fred is here in London. We are having dinner with him tonight.
Jack - Bring him over here. I want to see him very much too. Who does he work for?
John- Agrimax. It started as a small company only 5 years ago and now it represents itself in 15 countries around the world.
Jack - Oh, really. I heard something about first-class agriculture machinery they produce. As far as I remember their XP-300 model was a great success.

When we launched our first laser printer in Europe there were so many restrictions that we decided to stop producing them. But later we set up assembly plants in Canada, Mexico, and Australia. Now we have a large dealer network and our sales are high.
John - I also remember hard time in my business. In the late 1990’s I directed a development and production programme. We decided to integrate e-commerce into our sales strategy and failed.
Jack - OK, John. I hope to see you two tonight. Why don’t you come to my place with Fred to have a cup of tea and discuss everything?
