“An entity or organisation is as visionary as its leader, but as strong as its team members. There is no substitute for experience, therefore we value the greatest assist of our company – experienced people forming a team, making us highly competitive and efficient in all disciplines allowing us to differentiate. I also acknowledge the doors that God has opened for us in difficult times. We have embraced the opportunities, and unashamedly states – Our foundation is on Him.”
