The company has its own proficient and competent sales force which includes value to sales by training the business's network of 250 suppliers for facilitating the sale of adhesives.
Core competences are not limited to adhesive manufacturing just as Island Ecn also focuses on making adhesive giving equipment to facilitate making use of its products.
