Achieving The Gold Standard
In many instances, you will find that we refer to our Slogan; "The Gold Standard". This is not a turgid attempt to declare that we are the best at what we do. We simply mean, that our collective experience has taught us the best way to execute our tasks in a manner that achieves the best possible results. Our strongest resource is our Collaboration Culture and generous inclusion in profit sharing for all our Employees, Affiliates and Professional Consultants.
It is not possible to have all the best minds working directly for our companies. However, we realised it is possible to have these minds working WITH our companies. What we have done is to build an International network of Professionals and Consultants across all sectors that actively partake in the execution of our personal projects and client projects. At every stage of a project, we have seasoned professionals actively contributing to the success of the project, and where applicable, rewarded for their time and knowledge.
How Lu Gold Serves Various Industries

This was a monthly retainer between Lu Gold HVAC and FMN that improved the lifetime of not only their Air Conditioning Units but also the machinery they were assigned to cool.
