…and still learning…

Since our earliest beginnings, over 70 years ago, we continually strive to improve our products and our service, and we’re still learning from experience. This underpins our ability to devise and provide solutions to the problems encountered by architects and designers specifying new auditoria, or managers trying to minimise disruption to busy production schedules.
