The distributor is one of our most reliable suppliers and we can’t give enough praise to Julie Warner, Carl F Groupco’s Product Manager for the Roto range and to the rest of the company for the back-up provided. We have had absolutely no areas of concern with the service provided to us over the last four decades – we can’t commend Carl F Groupco highly enough.
“With regards to the transition to Roto hardware, Carl F Groupco has invested considerable time in understanding our stock requirements to ensure continuity of existing and planned contracts. In conjunction with Roto, the products were fully tested and demos were provided.
