Charitable Work

We support our local community by sponsoring local charities and events such as playgrounds, music and sports projects and involve local artists in the development of promotional materials. We also have various training schemes designed to help pupils at local secondary schools learn web design and entrepreneurship skills.

We also support the Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT), the UK’s leading charity working to reduce the number of children and young people killed, disabled or seriously injured in accidents.

Customer Service

We believe that we should recommend the products and services that you really need and no more. In fact we will always try to save you money and will recommend more economic solutions if these are available. This philosophy is reflected by our sales staff and our service engineers. None of our sales or service staff therefore receive any performance bonus. All our staff are paid fixed wages, taking the pressure off them to force products onto our customers that are not really needed.

We are always looking for ways to improve so we ask our customer to complete a 3rd part review. This feedback is continuously assessed by our dedicated team to see what changes can be implemented to improve the buying experience for our customers. See our customer feedback
