A truly connected business

Whereas the majority of our competitors in the support services sector operate in single lines, PTSG operates across several niche areas. This connected approach is part of our business philosophy and the reason for our high market share. It means that we may enter a market with one product and/or service and then eventually become the service provider of choice across more areas.
