I have been dealing with both Shaun and John at East Lancashire Platers for many years.
They have supported our Group businesses with their treatment facility to ensure that we achieve our customer schedule requirements.
Their quotations are always returned in a speedy manner and they have provided an excellent service for our AOG, Tactical and Strategic accounts.
I would personally recommend them for the service that they provide and they have always acted in a supportive and professional manner in a constantly evolving industry.
ELP has consistently provided ourselves with a service that is both proactive and supportive of the needs of our customers. A lot of the work that we send to them is for the spares business (Airbus, BAE etc.) and they are always willing to work with us on the challenges that this brings; AOG’s etc. Shaun and his team are always willing to offer collaborations to help attract new long term work and willing to invest where the commitment exists. Local, dependable and helpful!
