Many of these awards are highly regarded international awards and reinforce our on going commitment to quality, health & safety and the environment, one that is deeply embedded in our company’s culture and our business processes. A number of our customers come from highly regulated industries, such as health, electronics, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, rail, aerospace and local authorities, so it’s important to maintain and continuously improve upon our own stringent standards.
