As part of our supply to Barking substation in Essex, a factory witness test was performed.
I just wanted to write to say thank you for your time and efforts yesterday during our visit to your factory. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and productive day from my point of view. I can see the quality and care of your production first hand and I felt that all your staff made us very welcome indeed from the moment we arrived in the morning until we left site. You kept us fed and watered and I felt that nothing was too much trouble for you which certainly makes a change from many other suppliers.
I look forward to receiving the switchboard at Barking in due course and I am sure it will give many years of reliable service on the National Grid transmission system. I am particularly heartened that it has been designed, assembled and manufactured in the UK by a British company. Keep up the excellent work and please pass on my appreciation to all your staff.
