Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year to RS colleagues and partners

Dear Colleagues!

The year 2023 is now becoming history. It abounded with events that required new solutions, new paths and approaches to work. This year, RS sought not only to retain and multiply expertise in familiar areas, but also to develop competences and expand the scope of services in new fields. Yet, despite the shift in focus, our key goal remained the improvement of safety standards and the sustained advancement of the industry.

The components of dynamic development are the collaboration of all participants in the process, joint contribution to the implementation of advanced projects, promotion of innovative technologies and an open dialogue. We would like to sincerely thank all those who have walked the path of change with us this year and look forward to continuing our cooperation with you. Together we will create and strengthen the foundations of new achievements and a confident way forward.

I extend my cordial congratulations to everyone on the coming New Year! May it bring stability and plentiful opportunities for financial growth, fresh ideas and the energy for their realization. I wish everyone great accomplishments, good health, well-being and prosperity in 2024!
