We will ensure a safe, pleasant and friendly work environment for our employees, encouraging them to achieve maximum fulfilment and growth, and to be recognised as well-trained, trustworthy and quality-oriented personnel.

Saybolt will reach out for new technical opportunities to broaden horizons, utilising all available resources and by the provision of a responsive communication channel for innovative ideas and constructive criticism. Maintenance of a strong organisation through mutual respect and support is a pre-requisite of Saybolt’s culture, supported by financial security, superior profitability and stable growth sustained by enhanced sales volume and effective cost controls at all levels.

The best in our industry

To Saybolt, Customer Service means the ability to constantly and consistently give the customer what they want and need. We manage our systems and resources so that we offer our clients a level of responsiveness and accessibility that is preeminent in our industry.

Throughout our organization we focus on continuous improvement in three areas: Customer Friendliness, Employee Commitment to customer service, and a constant Customer Dialog.

The speed with which we deliver fast and accurate inspection and testing details is a pivotal role in a current dynamic and fluctuating market; we concentrate on maximising the promptness of reporting whilst safeguarding quality, and endeavour to become the world leader by providing not only the best, but also the quickest, service.

Data access without delay

Your voice counts. All our operations are supported by global IT systems designed to quickly overview your orders without delay and on-line. We will consolidate all your operational quality and quantity data, using Six Sigma to continuously improve our service delivery and embedded key performance indicators (KPI's) to evaluate the pace of your logistic processes.

Access to our network has never been easier and more convenient.

Highly customized service level

We instill in our management and staff the requirement that they "listen" to what our clients say, that they consider all issues impartially, and that they "talk" to clients face-to-face rather than send impersonal e-mails. We want to share in your business, to learn what you require, to provide you with sound business solutions, and to ensure you have a good experience working with Saybolt.

Business access to the Saybolt organization is made as easy as possible. For global contracts, our global sales contacts are promptly available to profile your agreement and manage all your requirements.
