About Us

Aren't they probably heroic

The naked truth

So, if you’re reading this, chances are that you’re mildly interested about who we are and what are our company’s values, right?

Let’s just start by saying that you’re not going to find here cliche expressions like “multidisciplinary team” – this one doesn’t count – or that we’re a “client-driven” company – As opposed to what? A supplier driven company? Get real, people! – or even that we’re incredibly proactive – which, by the way, we try to be.

Simply put, enough of the tiresome babble you pretty much see/read everywhere and about which we suspect you are, just like ourselves, completely fed up.

That said, here’s what we, as a company, do and don’t believe in and what give us that nervous eye twitch:
