GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY With the help of CVP, the GTC had a party to remember

“One can call and speak to somebody who is trained and knows what they’re doing. In terms of support, there’s the stockholding.

than the manufacturers’ websites. I would probably describe it as class-leading, if not world-leading.” Baxter would be proud.
