We are proud of what we do and how we do it. In consultation with both our employees and customers Salix have developed a clear vision and set of values to reflect the ambitions of this fresh and forward-thinking organisation. Our people and community are at the heart of everything we do and are key to making sure the key corporate objectives are achieved.
