FLEXIBLE “NETWORK” ORGANISATION MODEL

This means the involvement of selected partners able to provide customers with “turnkey” solutions.
The particular type of work organisation ensures increased productivity according to need and
adaptability to the requirements of the moment.
This cuts organisation costs with considerable advantages for customers.
