Team spirit is an inevitable by product of such a process. But while technology is no substitute for commitment, through our highly skilled management team we have also established a systematic and targeted professional development method based on cutting-edge analytical and statistical techniques, without ever losing sight of the ancient craftsmanship on which our success is based. In so doing we have taken our place among the world’s minting elite.
