What's in a name?
Petra Solutions Inc. has derived its name for three reasons:
The word "Petra" is a Greek word that can be translated "massive rock". It is our intent to provide solutions that are rock solid and reliable.
Petra, being a Greek word was also selected to honor the Greek heritage of the President and founder of Petra Solutions Inc.
