“During the year in which we have worked together, ABS has shown itself well able to meet our need for quality products and efficient service. ABS has proven its ability and competence, and it is therefore now natural to enter into a deeper and worldwide agreement,” says Ronald Sol, Strategic Purchasing Director at Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies.
