“In many ways, we’re an extension of our clients’ own operations groups. Much of our work is in support of existing facilities, where we have ongoing long-term relationships with our clients. The continuity in our work is very satisfying… we get to contribute to the longevity and efficiency of our clients’ businesses and facilities, and that helps them to be successful.
We like to make our clients heroes. To do that, you have to understand what they need. It’s not just about technology. You have to understand the chemistry, all the elements. You can’t just refer to a manual. You need to leave every client feeling like they’ve got someone on their side. They are focused on their role and when they need help to achieve something that is outside of regular operations—they need to feel like they’ve been smart to call you. That’s the way we want all our clients to feel.”
