Crisis 'cleans' inspection industry
Due to dramatic decline in export & trade volume which is only expected to engrave in the coming few months many companies including inspection companies are put to the test. Several inspection companies had to lay-off substantial numbers of employees and reduce their rates and as a result reduce their services. This is the time it becomes clear which are the sound, professional organizations and which have no chance to survive, especially not a crisis of the magnitude we are facing now.
It is then also with pleasure that Commodity Inspection Services (CIS) sees their activities only marginally under pressure; in some sectors business is even growing! Commodity Inspection Services (CIS) did not have to lay-off any employees which would otherwise have been a drain in expertise and experience. Commodity Inspection Services (CIS) is convinced that the year 2009 will bring a moderate growth of business volume as well as global turnover.
