Our latest copper product has finally arrived after being a year long project that has involved rejecting multiple manufacturers, in favour of the man I have trusted for many years. His price was double the others prices. When I try to reason with him, and let it slip that the others screw it up, he tells me that’s his price and he gets it right! Perfect logic.

Likewise, we are able to produce schedules with our suppliers from around the world shipping directly to Bangkok. We plan on having a Sydney based consultant in Bangkok on a monthly basis in order to fulfil projects to a high standard. The

Two years on at the PYD design centre
