"Adam, I would like to say thank you to you and to your team for the completing the handrail project here at Sydney Steel Mill on time at such short notice. The effort and enthusiasm shown by Michael and the team was outstanding and much appreciated. The GM told me this was the only job he was worried about being completed and was surprised and relieved when he drove in Monday morning and saw the results of your peoples work. Also thank you for completing the Argon tank painting on an even shorter timeframe and with the weather throwing up the odd obstacle. The results of both completed tasks has pleased our board of directors.
Again thank you very much and you should be very proud of the crew you have and I hope to do business with you again."
"Adam, thanks for the exceptional efforts of you and you team during the HMAS Manoora EMA Major Intermediate Docking - 01/2009 under the Prime Contracted Work package and those tasks undertaken under Rolls-Royce and as Commonwealth Con-current tasks. Could you also pass on to your team that the work undertaken was to quality standards resulting in HMAS Manoora being delivered in a better operational condition. Once again thanks to you and your team much appreciated. You and your team have managed to set a record with regard to the tiedowns (89) that were cropped and re-newed as in the past only 20 have been achieved during any one Availability. Will certainly keep your company in mind when requiring work to be undertaken in the future."
