    Pros

    Personal Development, and career opportunities. The company has gone a series of new owners over the past fifteen years with a continuous strive to improvement and energy and resource reduction, this has left the company with a reduced but highly prouctive asset base, with a competitive marketing strategy, Continued focus on product quality and the correct product portfolio, will see G.P. emerging from the present economic downturn with sustainable competitive advantage.

    Cons
