It is fantastic that my personal core values of integrity and honesty align with akp Scotland’s ethos. I’m lucky to be able to work with the dedicated and committed team at akp Scotland and our loyal supply chain who are second to none. Each employee’s perseverance has contributed to our previous and continued success, and, building on our solid foundations, I’m looking forward to helping the company strengthen and flourish.”
