Message from the CEO

Avalon's business model is evolving. We are enhancing our key international operations to ensure a consistent and positive experience for our customers, partners, suppliers and employees. Leveraging synergies across our group under the Avalon Trade banner enables the delivery of world-class services globally across our international network.

We continue to operate in a number of core industries where our clear vision and strategy is always trusted by our clients. This vertical strategy is underpinned by the strength of our global network which we will continue to enhance in 2020 and beyond.

As a group we remain committed to corporate and social responsibility, which is a core part of all of our business. In all of our actions we strive to ensure that all economic, environmental and social factors are considered. We believe that this approach, driven by our principles of respect, integrity and involvement, makes us more responsible and informed as a company.

With years of experience within our operational fields, we firmly advocate the importance of all Avalon staff within the network of the company. As such the pride, professionalism and dedication is shown by all teams now operational in every major continent.
