This deal is particularly close to home for JDi, Lisa is the sister our CEO, Chris Phillips, and SMT was purchased from Lisa & Chris’ father, Terry.

The company is currently undergoing a dramatic rebranding exercise and rapidly developing business development initiatives to help push the business forwards and expand the reach of the company. There are a few exciting new relationships to announce soon, so watch this space!
