“First of all a big THANK YOU to you all for attending this very special occasion. For those that have been with the Company from the beginning this is indeed a very welcome period in the history of Offshore Weather Services.
I would like to extend a warm thank our wonderful culturally diverse and very talented staff that have put up with less than optimum working conditions for too long a time.
Last but certainly by no means least I would like to thank the Mayor of Monash City for gracing us today and making this indeed a very special occasion” said Mr Peter Wellby, Chairman of the Board of Directors.
