        I can say for sure that our company is one of them. We're using FOP in
        production to generate many complex reports. We have nothing but
        praise for FOP, and hope that the project continues to grow as it has.

        I would encourage other companies to do this where ever possible. We've
        hired Keiron to work here on fop full time. I realise some companies
        might not be in the position to do this, but I'm sure anything one
        could offer would be of help.

        Great to hear this is happening.

        Cheers,
