Now we have a proud legacy of successful project achievements which we can share with prospective clients,was the opening statement from Dr Merida Roets, co-director of the Rural Development Company, Scientific Roets.
Dr Roets, along with her husband and co-director, Adriaan, a Professional Engineer, and staff, presided over an official opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at their new offices at 96 Hope Street on Thursday evening with invited guests. Guests were shown around the modern, spacious and high-tech facility and introduced to the friendly and helpful staff.
