What our customers have to say. 

«I landed, together with my wife and daughter, in Tokyo. My plan was to spend five months in Japan preparing for the World Barista Championship. Just a week after we arrived we were delighted to discover that my wife was pregnant. Thanks to fantastic support from SWICA, all of the doctor's appointments in Japan – so far away from home – went smoothly. And all the associated costs were also covered. This meant that my wife was able to enjoy her pregnancy and I was free to concentrate fully on preparing for the championships. Incidentally, thanks to my intensive preparations I came 10th in the world championships. Since then I have travelled all over the world for coffee.

Recently SWICA was able to help me again. I needed some documents for my Russian trip and SWICA sent all of them to me overnight. One phone call was all I had to make. Thanks to SWICA’s speedy support I was obtained my Russian visa in good time and was able to make my presentation in Moscow as planned.»

«This partnership helps our organisation move forward. As an SME, we work very closely with SWICA. We have illness rates that are higher than we would like and are trying to develop our occupational health management so that we can get the situation under control. My direct SWICA contact is available to provide advice practically around the clock.»
