They pride themselves on their technical expertise, from concept development, design, manufacture, installation and servicing; all of which are completed by their experienced workforce. They have a long-term vision for the business and are continuing to grow, evidenced by the fact they have almost doubled their headcount over the last 2 years and are now looking to further strengthen their sales function.
