“Lafferty Project Managers responded quickly to a request for a feasibility study for a multimillion euro sterile expansion at our facility. Timelines were critical, and professional representations of potential options and budget estimates were essential.

Lafferty Project Managers were great and came to my rescue in a very short timeframe. The study provided the level of detail I needed and with an accuracy that far exceeded my expectations. This allowed us to stay on track toward our ambitions for a potential expansion opportunity.”
