Jaundre Seale, Production Manager , Roll on labels
“From sharing the concept and our requirements to the final installation, dealing with Uwe and his Team has been like dealing with a trusted friend who just personalizes his attention and effort on you and helps you make the right decisions by listening and asking lots of questions.
The ordering process and dealing with DCM was also pleasantly unique and charming as only the French can be; they made us feel so special ordering their equipment. The lead times and shipment details were effectively communicated and we were kept informed every step of the journey. Absolutely painless!
The installation was efficient because everything we needed was communicated to us in detail, so we were able to set things up long before arrival. This helped make installation good with the confidence and calmness of Uwe, Andreas and Robin – the awesome Packwise team!
As for the Training, Uwe was genuinely committed to ensure he left with our Team adequately trained to be left alone to run.
Yes there were a few snags after he left, totally normal when you’re starting something new, but Uwe was there for us on a WhatsApp group, assisting, teaching and encouraging. We feel well-supported and excited to offer our market equally good service and quality shrink sleeves.”
Teresa Adinolfi, Director, Redfern
