I've worked with the guys at Lee-Dickens for many years on numerous projects. They have always given me help, guidance and worked with me to develop ideas that I've needed to make our projects successful.

Once implemented their support has been impeccable and nothing has been too much trouble for them to take the time to look at and resolve.

I cannot rate Andy and his team highly enough. They have certainly helped to make a success of our business.

Wartsila Water Systems (CNG, Compressors)

Lee-Dickens have provided us with our telemetry solutions since 2013 and our partnership is still going strong to this day. They have offered us a bespoke package to allow us to monitor our remote sites in an effective manner helping us to identify issues before they occur which reduced our costs on labour and spare parts for our machinery.

No task we have given them has been any trouble and they always revert in a timely professional manner. They continue to offer us updates and improvements to our equipment and advise us what changes to the current markets would be best for the customer. They have resolved any issues we have had with efficiency and a level of professionalism second to none.

Without their support we couldn’t provide our customers with the 24/7 engineering support we need to offer in the current climate.
