RECOMMENDATION

Maton Production Manager • Patrick Evans • 2009

“Paris is an excellent employee and we are sad to lose his services. In his time at Maton he has demonstrated a keen work ethic, a thirst for knowledge and a talent for organisation and identifying priorities. He has become an import asset to the company as a “go to” man if something out of the ordinary needs to be done with a minimum of supervision and instruction.”
