Interview with Expleo

  • We’ve had a busy and productive week. As a company we’re on the fringe of naval construction but we’ve had a lot of interest in shipbuilding and our capabilities. DSEI attracts high level delegations and we’ve had some very good discussions. The event has been well organised with superb facilities and friendly helpful security.
