They have expanded at a higher rate than their competitors, growing over eight times since 2002, and the secret of its success are strong core values.

 A glance at Sukup's innovative catalogue is impressive. For example, they have produced AutoCAD/Google Sketchup designs for the planning of new facilities and then set these onto Google Earth.
