What our customers say

Thanks to Amy and Sam for their assistance last week. It's always really appreciated to know Quantum are at the end of a phone when we need you all to get us back up and running.

David Gamble - July 2020

Just wanted to say a big thank you for your efforts on Saturday evening when I contacted the out of hours team to get us out of the mire. We had an event which lead to the failure and subsequent loss of 2 inverters; this stopped us from brewing our products. Within 20 minutes I was being told that a solution was being worked up to get us up and running again. A truly outstanding service! Once again, we thank you for a full and proper service. Quantum Controls were the only 24hr service to respond to our call. Cheers!

Andrew Dyche - June 2020

Thank you for your assistance over the bank holiday weekend! The guys on site were very impressed with the response and the engineer who came to site.

Simon Parson - May 2020

Thank you for the excellent level of service supplied over the weekend. I have had a lot of promises over the years from other Drive Suppliers and this is the first time someone has truly delivered.
