    Thank You
    Dear BW:
    Since your sentence already contains 4 'to's, I'd go with continue offering.

    Also possible: The company, in its eagerness to expand and to continue offering a made-to-measure product of the highest quality,...

    Best wishes,

    Petra

    Thank You very much, but let me ask you, is there any difference using to continue to offer or to continue offering?

    Thanks again.
