“These awards are a significant accomplishment for Sun Brazil, Sun Mexico and Sun Chile and recognize the focus we place on personnel and workplace initiatives throughout the region,” said Jaime Valles, Vice President, Sun Latin America.
“Sun’s people are the key to our success and we truly appreciate their hard work, dedication and confidence in Sun.”
