From humble beginnings in 1972, the L&A brand has achieved successes on the back of a determined approach to ensure the delivery of high quality services. This valued reputation has opened doors for L&A to expand into new markets, whilst along the journey entrenching L&A within the economic and social fabric of a modern Papua New Guinea.
