Testimonials

I would like to thank you for your time yesterday, very much appreciated and I would like to say how impressed I was with your company structure and layout. Look forward to seeing you in the near future with some new products.

3C Test offers Technical Advice and guidance which we do not get elsewhere. Reliable, good quality testing at a competitive price. The engineers use the accurate data we have acquired in an intelligent way to overcome problems.

We are very happy with the service and co-operation we get here. It's a two-way thing. Improvements? No improvements to suggest really, we get just what we need.

Your facilities are excellent, and the engineers are very friendly, very helpful. I know you are not the cheapest but who wants a cheap test house that tells you your product has failed and throws it back at you, sometimes you cannot even speak to an engineer, just sales people. How you can judge a company is when you have problems and how they react, I am very impressed with the service and will certainly return.

Suggestions for Improvements? Nothing can be improved, you have been spot on with everything, excellent, and your engineer has tried everything he can to help us. Your service has been far and beyond what we had asked for.

Presentation is important, the grandeur and opulence and the fresh clear-cut feel of your building is superb. Along with the new facilities it is exactly what we wanted for our testing. We are testing to stringent spec and the automotive connection here is important to us! In the past we have built up a good relationship with 3C through e mails and quite complex negotiations regarding our requirements. I enjoy coming here.
