    Look forward to seeing you again

    I met a prospect at a Trade Fair. Then I emailed our marketing letter to him. I received the prospect's reply as follows:-

    "I am now on a trip and will get back to you when I am back to my office. Lookingforward to a long term business relationship with your company."

    I wonder if my reply below is natural.

    "Thanks for your reply. Look forward to seeing you again and we hope we can have a long term business relationship with your company too."

    Please note that I use "we" to represent our company.

    Re: Look forward to seeing you again

    It's OK, but I'd move the 'too': and I too hope ... .

    Personally, I'd begin with I, and insert a comma after ​again.

    Thanks Piscean. Do you mean I should correct it as follows:-

    Thanks for your reply. Look forward to seeing you again and I too hope we can have a long term business relationship with your company.

    I look forward to seeing you again, and I too hope we can have a long-term business relationship with your company.

    I forgot to mention the hyphen in long-term.
