Global Purchasing Manager for a Manufacturer of Heavy Equipment based in South Carolina USA
“We became aware of Keltech as a supplier of top quality acoustic enclosures when they were recommended to us by our European colleagues. The main challenge we faced when starting this supply partnership was the cost effective and safe transport of product from Ireland to our Newberry plant in South Carolina USA. Keltech designed a bespoke packaging solution that not only maximised the available space of deep sea container but also ensured that product arrived at our plant defect free, I have no problem in giving Keltech my highest recommendation ”
