We see electricians as one of the most important key stakeholders in our business arena. We as ACL Cables always strive to keep our key stakeholders satisfied whilst they are partnered with us. This helps both parties to work well together towards a common goal. Moving one step further we thought of extending our support towards their families as well. Hence, we continued this rewards scheme for the children of these electricians who work hard towards achieving higher goals and we are pleased to continue this worthy cause for the 3rd consecutive year.”
