"Our customers expect our products to be at the leading edge of technology and our new premises reflect this. Harlow Council were very welcoming to a new business moving into the Harlow area. It certainly made the process of relocating positive and much easier than we had envisaged. In recent months, we have advertised in the Harlow area and have been very pleased with the strong response that we have experienced."
