Partnering up with GDB International has made a great difference to our revenue. Earlier we often found ourselves struggling to meet the strategic goals of reducing carbon footprint and adopting sustainable practices in this industry. But since our association with GDB, there is a drastic upturn on every front. They have this end-to-end approach that helps with minimizing wastage, which is a major concern in the paint industry. It helps companies like ours to reduce carbon footprint, stay within regulations without having to spend any extra money on disposal or surplus management.
