Our promise 

We will work fast and thoroughly to do the task agreed.

We warrant that you will get value for money. We recognise that your investment in our service must have a payback like any investment. If what you want to do won't return you a dividend, we will tell you. Our objective is to make your business more profitable, more enjoyable, just plain better.

Remuneration can be flexible. Usually a daily rate, but prepared to discuss reward based on improvements made. A share of the zinc consumption saved might be nice, but not necessary!
