First Class Service from the moment I contacted APDS, I received a call the same day and was offered advice over the phone, they then rerouted an Engineer in my area to see the issue first hand. This was swiftly followed up and an Engineer dispatched 2 days later to rectify the fault.

We got good support from both ABB and APDS right from the beginning. The site demonstration proved that we could seethe energy savings and could satisfy ourselves that the reduced speed would not lead to degradation in air quality.
