A significant growth, useful for enriching the skills and corporate culture. The sharing of experiences, know-how, technologies and human capital will be the guideline of the integration project of C.R. Service in the Axactor Group, with the primary objective of preserving and enhancing the excellences that are already recognized today to C.R. Service from the market.
