TESTIMONIALS

  • Barry Wilson, Senior Asset Engineer: 'I just wanted to say how impressive it has been for me to see first hand the hard work which everybody put in to ensure the BML project commissioned on time. The installation on site is of a high quality and although a couple of issues these are small when the size of the project is seen. The DU team are very pleased. The Network Rail testing management team and the rest of the client organisation are very grateful to you all.'
