This was a strategic purchase for myself fitting in with my background and having worked for the company for three years I had an in depth knowledge of the company’s inner workings, customers and staff.

“I am looking forward to the business growing within our current customer base and supplemented by work from new customers in the services and products that we offer within our current geographic target area.
