The MECC’s story is one about a team of people. A team whose aim and firm conviction is to give more than people expect. It might sound simple, but nothing could be farther from the truth. It means that one thoughtful call when your customer has an important day, that bottle of wine that is waiting for you after you have paid us a visit, pro-active thinking on a broad range of issues and even the willingness to get out of bed in the middle of the night when you’re needed. No request is too extreme. Why? Because for us, there is only one thing that matters: our customers’ success. To achieve this, we are prepared to do more than what is expected of us. We push the boundaries of expectations, and our goal is to surpass them. In other words, to go the extra mile and exceed even our own expectations. This doesn’t just apply to customer satisfaction, but it also has a literal meaning. At the MECC, our customers can cross borders and surpass their own expectations. Think of us as a gateway to Europe, with three national borders within a half-hour drive; this is a unique mix we believe in. It is a mix that can be summarised in two words. Are you also looking for the same thing? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
