One of MES’s guiding philosophies is “To Develop Quality Suppliers Across the Globe.” One of MES’s key metrics for analyzing the quality of our parts is Quality PPM. Quality PPM is measured in “quantity of parts rejected per million parts shipped.” MES prides itself on having committed supplier partners and genuinely feels that they are only as good as their suppliers.

We expect profits of companies to go up,” said Per Wistoft, chief executive officer of Dubai-based United Arab Chemical Carriers that operates a big fleet of tankers in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.
