"According to historical patterns, the aviation industry will soon find itself in an upswing following current global economic recession and when this happens we will be ready to offer the most efficient service and technical support to our customers. Focusing on their satisfaction via this new call center is essential to sustain Mechtronix Systems' position and competitiveness on a national and international scale."
"The Government's funds enables us to develop a state-of-the-art call center, equipped with next generation innovative technology including a high end communication system facilitating direct interaction with FSTD operators", adds René Veerman, Vice President Customer Support.
