Mark continued to say “at the heart of our business is providing a quality professional service to our clients and staying at the top of our game in terms of certification and the development of our team is key to that goal and we are delighted to achieve this standard which is a testimate to our dedication to quality levels of service to our clients.  This builds on the Company core strategy of delivering leading edge consultancy & testing to our broad customer range and has come about as a result of much focus and attention by our growing team of multi-disciplined professionals.”
