Hello

FRUGO Company has entrusted us with repairing their ships for years.

By the above sentence, I mean to say that we have for years repaired ships delivered by FRUGO Company, which shows that we enjoy their trust.

What is your opinion?

Thank you.

I don't agree that it indicates that you enjoy​ their trust.

Why not? What is wrong with it? Could you expand on that?

I'm not sure how I can expand on it. Can you show me exactly which part of your original sentence indicates that you enjoy that trust?

It is not about the sentence, but it is the general truth. If someone is known for performing good quality jobs and they have been doing it for a long time, it is normal for other people to start trusting them by entrusting them with rendering various services.

I totally understand why FRUGO trusts your company. If they didn't, they wouldn't keep giving you their business. I'm still confused about how you think that indicates that your company enjoys having FRUGO's trust.
I'm starting to think we're not using the same definition of "enjoy".

Enjoy works for me there. It means "have earned, and benefit from".

Is there a reason to capitalize all the letters of "Frugo"? Also, is "Company" really part of its official name?
