IFE 2011 Excel London

We had a successful 4 days at IFE 2011, held at Excel London from the 13th - 16th March. Many thanks to all our customers who visited us on our stand.

Much interest was created by our new sample cases, carrying over 120 examples of the different products we supply. The consensus was that to view the actual product gives a much better appreciation than descriptions or images.

All of our account managers now have these sample cases, so please feel free to make an appointment so that they can discuss your specific requirements.
