FIRC not only helped deepen the understanding of our products, but also gave us valuable insights on how to improve the overall product quality. We were also impressed with the timelines of their project management, specifically in providing regular updates and reports with useful recommendations.

We were looking for ways to reduce the amount of time and labour spent on menial task. FIRC approached the problem methodically, and managed to successfully help us streamline our operational processes in production and storage.

If your business does not have a technical team or lack technical background, it would be good to work with FIRC on a project basis. Even if you do have your own laboratory or technical team, you can use FIRC's resources to scale up to pilot plant production. The team at FIRC is always helpful and a pleasure to work with.
