Mark, in pushing the company forward, likes to think of himself as the accelerator in a motor car - without it, it's going nowhere. But if you ask the team, with some of the projects he takes on, it sometimes feels like he's left the hand-brake on or gone in to reverse. Exports are now high on his agenda, no doubt he will be selling sand to the Arabs.
One of Mark's favorite phrases is 'our only limitation is your imagination' - something that has become the ethos of our business mentality. All of the team at Midas, led by Mark, strive to push the boundaries of technology beyond the limits ever known before, to offer a service that no other company can give.
