All this investment has been to ensure continued high quality of product and on time delivery. With the popularity of Kentec equipment growing rapidly it has been essential to invest to meet our own high standards. Their focus is on customer service and we pride ourselves on quick turnaround and our ability to react quickly to customer requirements and market trends.
