SIA Rotterdam: the ideal location for international business

Rotterdam provides SIA with a stable, rewarding and internationally oriented business climate. The second city of the Netherlands is an excellent choice, and is the ideal entry point for the European markets.

SIA supports Carn tidy towns

SIA are happy to give back to the local community by supporting the Tidy Towns Committee.  There has been a Tidy Town group in Carn almost for over fifty years ago. The current group was formed in 1998 when a handful of interested individuals met in  and set up the Carndonagh Tidy Town Association. Clean-ups were organised and carried out on a regular basis. Much good work was done.


Eco-friendly flexitank

Besides the cost savings – a flexi fits in 32,000 bottle equivalents compared with the 9,000 a container full of pallets carries Bulk shipping is being adopted for its eco-friendliness.

First, the flexitanks weight is mostly wine, whereas glass bottles weigh 300 grams at the lower end to and nearly 1kg at the irresponsible upper end.

SIA’s newest member in Houston, Texas, Alan Miner was Live at the Houston Livestock show & Rodeo.

Great show with one of my fellow Rodeo members and our wives. Pics of some of the events and riders, one close in name to Eunan, a bull rider, bull won. Mutten bustin for kids 4-6 in age, probably the rodeo favorite.

This show has grown in size since I started volunteering from 5000 members to over 30000 this year. They have given away over 18000 scholarships to kids since its inception and the entertainers only ask enough to cover their travel expenses and the rest of the proceeds goes back to HLSR for distribution to cover all the other costs & expenses.
