Well done John Elder & Ray Peters on a well deserved testimonial


Now that the coating repairs are completed on the Swan Baltic and Swan Biscay we wanted to thank both Ray and John for their invaluable contribution to ensuring the best possible outcome in what was difficult circumstances.

In particular, Superintendent Andrew Russ wanted to thank John Elder who he advises;

“Was outstanding in his support and guidance during the project and didn’t give an inch when it came to getting the quality finish we expected, in my opinion it was an excellent decision to employ independent paint inspector to protect our interests and we were very lucky to have such a hard working dedicated individual such as John Elder to be assigned to this project. I will be sending a thank you and an email of thanks and recommendation to his employers concerning this matter.”
