Recent stock standards

I have nothing but praise for the team that help me with my orders, particularly Gary Barazi who I deal with most of the time, although if Gary isn't available the process is picked up by other members of the ESSLAB team. When I ask for quotes for existing products or new custom mix products I get a quick response. The delivery dates are always realistic and orders usually arrive by the estimated dates. I tell the team when I place an order so that they can look out for it and if it doesn't arrive within a few days i am informed so that I can chase it up through our purchasing system as things do sometime get lost.

Outstanding customer service

We had a non standard problem, important and urgent which required research by Esslab to give us the solution. After discussions, Chris @ Esslab gave me a list of products using in stock components. Order one day, delivered the following day. You can't ask more from a supplier.
