Testimonial

Faced with a tight customer deadline for one of our key growth products, DSC turned to Nexreg for converting our MSDS to an EU French language SDS. Within a very short time frame, Nexreg staff provided a competitive quote and turnaround time. With the technical support of highly professional and responsive Nexreg consultants we were able to provide our customer with a compliant SDS that supported their downstream manufacturing needs. Thank you Nexreg!
