Financial Stability

We have a strong and stable growing gross profit, we are profitable and we continue to be owned by our founders and our leaders. Our priorities are our customers, our employees and our partners around the world. Throughout the pandemic, we did not eliminate staff, we paid all our partners timely and we worked proactively with our customers to help them through the many challenges caused by the pandemic. We don’t focus on short term financial gain, nor do we have to bend to the whims of a market based investor group. We focus on saying yes to our customers, to treating our employees like our customers and our partners like the colleagues they are in our journey to build a customer centric eco-system!
