Traditionally, one would start a business, create a website and then start the journey of writing the Blog’s on the timeline of significant events that happen to the Business along the way (or something like that).
This is definitely not that case with Protong. We have been on this journey for around 3 years now – literally building a business from an idea we stumbled on and morphed into something quite amazing. I won’t go into the details of how the business came about, please see the About Us section for that – but I will attempt to give you a timeline of milestones we have met on our journey so far.
This is officially the launch of our new and improved website and a massive thanks must be given to Mark from Stonefern Design Studio and Roger from Digital Forest for the amazing design work and development of our amazing new website.
