During the first semester of 2020, Syone continued to exceed expectations, a result brought by the dedication and commitment of all employees through these difficult times of such uncertainty at an economic and financial level.

We’ve received several messages of appreciation and praise from clients, for our commitment and dedication.” - Eduardo Taborda, CEO Syone.
