Client Feedback

“They certainly impressed me with their can-do attitude, excellent strong work ethics and eagerness to assist any other department when requested. The amount of work they achieved (most of which had a high potential for injury or major dropped object), to have completed this without one single incident is testament to the level of leadership, teamwork and communication displayed by the MRDS employees.  Having had to reassess the task and look at alternative ways to complete the operation, presented certain challenges. This was handled with the highest level of professionalism at all times.  Their experience and knowledge were vital to ensuring that the operation continued without the need for a project shutdown.”
