HG Trade Wind

HG International b.v. renews its partnership with Trade Wind B.V. and we are proud of it. Our partnership started more than 10 years ago, and now HG International has decided to use Lisam Systems‘ software system ExESS to calculate, create and translate all their safety data sheets (SDS) and labels. The user-friendliness, flexibility and openess were the deciding factors to replace Sphera with ExESS. Our implementation partner ChemPros B.V. has completed the installation and training and offers support where needed.

Welcome HG International, we’re very happy that you’ve chosen us again!
