"HORK" is a West-Friesian word (West-Friesian itself is an old Dutch dialect) meaning "Rebel". It signifies our commitment to find new and better ways to perform our services and to cast off the average and the mediocre. Taking a more intelligent approach to solving problems is what sets us apart from the competition.
