“As a visitor from Australia, the Newton gang were very friendly and helpful. The venue for the PCA training course was excellent with relevant displays of systems and products. Waterproofing knowledge of our hosts, especially Stuart, was reassuring for our crew, being on foreign soil and out of our comfort zone. Very well hosted and catering was great, especially pizza. We will be recommending this training for our Australian colleagues and looking forward to further developing our relationship with Newton and the PCA.” Andrew Gollé, Australian Institute of Waterproofing Committee Member
