Peter has driven the investment in state-of-the-art processing equipment for the businesses, using sophisticated technology to assure a consistently high-quality product manufactured to a tight tolerance. The resulting fast response times and capacity for high volumes has led to a superb reputation for quality combined with customer care and a market-leading blend of guaranteed performance and competitive pricing. The strategy under Peter’s leadership is one of working openly, honestly and safely – being dependable and collaborative through a culture of continuous improvement.
