Hudson Chairman, Alfie Borg, commented that “Trilogy and Hudson share common values, with both companies built on similar foundations through extraordinary personal dedication from its shareholders and their employees. We share similar ethics, culture, vision and professionalism providing for a perfect fit between the two companies.”
