Rossi underlined the importance of the CSE listing by describing how “it would provide much needed transparency and growth capital.”
At the same time the Worksport CEO provided guidance that as with any year in any business, “There are peaks and valleys and ebbs and flows in growth plans.” Rossi was referring to challenges in manufacturing when the company changed made changes in its supply chain and improvements to its product designs.
