Our rebranding efforts positioned the company and brand as an international entity, and within three years, the company grew to four (4) branches and over ve (5) distributors across Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts, Antigua, Dominica. The visibility of the brand grew tremendously with the acquisition of major clients such as the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, and the Ministry of Health, Barbados including the TDC in St. Kitts.
