"We¹ve been working with ACCUCOMS for some time now," commented George
Kendall, Production, Marketing and Licensing Manager at PNAS. "We¹ve been
impressed with their professionalism and know that our customer
relationships are safe in their hands. It¹s important for PNAS to maximize
its presence in Europe and ACCUCOMS offer an unparalleled knowledge of this
market. Their contacts and language skills will help us communicate with our
European customers in a much more personal and effective way."
