Working toward the future in the Present (Experience):

For STIC experience is not just a number - because that simply states how old we are - but a journey, which comprises all the triumphs and trials, crashes and crescendos, opportunities and threats that we have learnt and risen from. Adapting to changes, both temporary and permanent, has helped us adopt a dynamic existence, wherein " the present" is in our work, but "the future" is in our minds.

Corporate Values:
