Tradition is paramount in our company. Over the years, a number of events have been established that neither the employees nor the management would miss. This includes not only the company Christmas party, but also the annual company outing which is organized by different departments each year. Occasionally we sponsor surprise activities and sporting events that the management often partakes in. A place of community and communication is last but not least the company cafeteria where free meals are available daily.
