Catalin Cristocea

My contact with UTM consultants started a couple of months ago, discussing opportunities and the possibility of working together. The collaboration was honest and natural since the beginning. In a very short term we actually started working together: a short notice project, my certificates not in place - not such a surprise in our business.

I have been really nicely surprised to see the "We have a situation, we solve the situation" attitude. A lot of things needed to be organised in a short space of time to be completed over and during the weekend. Their way of dealing with any situation faced, along with everything being so clear and organised has made me feel a part of the team. I believe the client was happy too, having a surveyor ready first thing on Monday morning for the vessel.

The service and treatment received by UTM Consultants is definitely up with the best I've worked for.
