“We want to be preferred and profitable”


Being preferred implies that we are the number one choice - and we can not hope to be preferred by all. For those who prefer us we understand that it is a privilege which requires a dedicated, innovative effort.


You can easily be preferred and loose a fortune, so the two go hand in hand. All in our organisation, not only the commercial people, must have a view to profitability, so that we can continue to be preferred in the future.
