""The service provided by the IAC Team was excellent. Personally, I would recommend that every plant should do energy study annually to reduce their energy usage to make tomorrow a better day. As far as evaluation is concerned, we are already very impressed with Mr.James and his team. They come up with new ideas & that is what we really liked about this study. Moreover, Mr. James guided us really well regarding some policies which are very useful for a company from the financial point of view. All and all, It was a great work performed by IAC Team and we would love to see them again after a year. Thank you.""
