Here's what they have to say about our service

On behalf of Guinness Packaging I would like to express our sincere thanks to you and your teams for the excellent work carried out on the BBT manifold modifications here ate Runcorn. The success of the project was due, in no small part, to your commitment in working the long hours necessary to ensure the work was completed within the allocated time frame. The few minor snags on start up again demonstrates the thought and attention to detail which ABM gave this project

- B Sykes
Technical Training Manager at Guinness Packaging

I would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend ABM for engineering projects and maintenance work both inside or outside Carlsberg-Tetley. As Brewery Maintenance Manager it was gratifying to know that such a high level of expertise was readily at hand

- G Davies
Eng. Maint. Manager at Carlsberg Tetley

As with all projects of this type it is how the team deal with the small issues that inevitably occur during the installation which makes or breaks the customer supplier relationship and for me, ABM have excelled with this.
