We also employ a directly employed team of install engineers which means we offer a total in-house service for any remedial and small works picked up from the service.

Our clients get to know their allocated engineer who in turn gets to know the site and equipment and ensure that the work is above standard as they will be going back to do the next service, this gives our clients the confidence in our engineers and FDS, thus ensuring their trust and loyalty.
