Our Policies

We offer our customers the best in service and reliability which has placed us at the forefront of our industry. With a well developed quality assurance program in place as well as staff who have been with us for many years, we continue to bring you only top level expertise and experience in this field.

Our company policies ensure that we maintain our goals in all our undertakings. They are as follows:

  • Our management style is strictly on a “hands-on” basis with all the directors actively involved in all aspects of each project. One of our directors are in charge of site installation while the other two directors are contract engineers.
  • We are dedicated to quality and meet our contract deadlines at all times.
  • A large proportion of our profits are retained within the company as financial reserves, providing stability to the company.
  • We enjoy priority, price and delivery status from all our suppliers thanks to our early payment history.
  • We maintain an “open-book” policy for negotiations or during final account or variation calculations.

We have managed to negotiate and secure a large percentage of our contracts using the above policies as a measure for our success.
